Abstract [en]

This thesis considers Estonian clause order and sentence structures in fiction, scientific prose, women’s magazines, newspapers and on private web pages. The material covers 4488 sentences exhibiting 197 more or less discrepant sentence structures. Recurrent constructions are clause enumerations, iterations, chains and webs. The sentences with direct speech and a reporting clause have a pattern of their own. Coordination or subordination is included in all constructions and patterns. There are distinct tendencies to where in the sentence different kinds of coordination or subordination occur. These observations on clause order and sentence structure imply genre specific language variation in Estonian.
