Abstract
The present paper reports the results of a quantitative corpus study on the variation of the German adjective inflection after so called pronominal adjectives. By using the four pronominal adjectives all- (“all”), beid- (“both”), manch- (“some”), and sämtlich- (“all”), issues concerning the extent of variation in this field of German adjective inflection as well as those factors which determine it are addressed. It is found that the distribution of strong and weak adjective inflection differs after the same pronominal adjective. However, this variation is neither free nor arbitrary, but rather is determined by morphosyntactic factors like case, number and government. The implications of the findings for the description and systematization of the variation in this field of adjective inflection are discussed.
