Current Trends in Grammaticalization Research

Conference URL:

This two-day workshop aims to bring together theoretical and empirical approaches to grammaticalization, degrammaticalization, and lexicalization, and we therefore welcome both theoretical and data-oriented submissions. Topics include (but are not restricted to): the grammaticalization-lexicalization interface; the status of pragmaticalization; contact-induced grammaticalization; psycholinguistic approaches to directional tendencies; grammaticalization, degrammaticalization, and lexicalization within a constructional framework. Plenary speakers are Hans-Olav Enger, Nikolaus Himmelmann, Graeme Trousdale, and Jacqueline Visconti. We invite abstracts for 30-minute papers (including ten minutes discussion time). Abstracts should not exceed a maximum of 400 words, including references. Please note that the deadline for abstract submission is April 15, 2009. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by May 15, 2009
