In contrast to New High German, little research has been done into functional verb structure in Middle High German. The present study is the first to examine Middle High German functional verb structures of the prepositional variety, which are generally acknowledged to be central to this linguistic phenomenon. The author first presents a large corpus of examples, discussing in detail the difficulties involved in establishing distinction criteria in certain cases. Then selected aspects of Middle High German functional verb structures are discussed, pinpointing similarities and differences over and against their New High German counterparts.
