Abstract:

"The book is a lucid and highly readable discussion of
grammaticalization...an excellent treatment of a central aspect of
language."-Language

Grammaticalization refers to the change whereby lexical terms and
constructions serve grammatical functions in certain linguistic
contexts and, once grammaticalized, continue to develop new
grammatical functions. Paul Hopper and Elizabeth Traugott synthesize
research from several areas of linguistics in this revised
introduction to the subject. The book includes substantial updates on
theoretical and methodological issues that have arisen in the decade
since the first edition, as well as a significantly expanded
bibliography. Particular attention is paid to recent debates over
directionality in change and the role of grammaticalization in
creolization.
