John Benjamins Publishing would like to announce the publication of
the following book in the field of Functional
Linguistics: New Reflections on Grammaticalization
by Ilse Wischer and Gabriele Diewald (eds.), University of
Potsdam/University of Hamburg

The contributions in this volume cover a wide range of theoretical and
methodological issues and raise a number of new questions that
indicate the future direction of grammaticalization studies. The
volume focuses on issues such as grammaticalization and
lexicalization; the unidirectionality hypothesis; the issue of the
relevance of contexts for grammaticalization; the description of
grammaticalization paths. Much of the current work concentrates on
such categories, as discourse markers, honorifics or classifiers,
which have not previously been central to works on
grammaticalization. Other studies take a new perspective on known
grammaticalization paths by applying concepts adopted from other
linguistic fields, such as prototype theory, morphocentricity, or by
discussing their findings from a comparative or typological angle,
presenting data from a large number of languages, often based on
extensive empirical investigations of written and spoken text corpora.
