抄録: The object-verb order in the 15th century was on decline in quality as well as in quantity. Recent studies have shown that the object-verb order is restricted to negated and quantified objects in the Aux-Obj-V sequence and topicalized objects in the Obj-ΦSubj-(Aux)-V sequence. Further investigation into the 15th century object-verb order, however, reveals that pronominal objects are also attested in the Aux-Obj-V and Obj-V sequences. In this paper, it is argued that this syntactically limited word order is derived by Object Shift accompanied by DISL (i.e. phonological dislocation rule) or further A'-movement. It is also shown that under the minimalist approach, the change in question is simply attributed to the loss of formal features that drive the relevant movement and the weakening of the phonological operation.
