Abstract:

The scholarship of Louis Goossens took him from Old to Present-Day
English and to human language as such, from auxiliaries and
grammaticalisation to m etaphor and metonymy, and from philology to
Functional and Cognitive Grammar.

32 papers have been written by colleagues and reflect the later stages
of G oossens' career. The papers focus on modality (with contributions
by E. Blo m, F. Wijnen & S. Gillis, X. Dekeyser, P. Harder, J. Nuyts,
K. Pelsmaekers & C. Braecke, L. Tasmowski & P. Dendale), lexical
semantics (M. Aguirre, W.De Mulder & P. Dendale, D. Geeraerts,
D. Sandra, G.A.J. Tops), metaphor (F . Boers, H. Cuyckens &
M. Verspoor, L. Lejeune), spelling (F. Daems, G. De Schutter),
grammatical categories (R. Dirven & G. Radden, G. Durieux & S. G
illis), pragmatics (R. Geluykens. K. Van de Poel), Functional,
Cognitive an d Systemic Grammar (with, among others, M. Hannay,
J.L. Mackenzie, D. No =ABl, A.-M. Simon-Vandenbergen), contact
linguistics (J. Blommaert, M. Meeu wis & J.-R. Yoka-Mpela),
grammatical models (W. Daelemans, K. Davidse), the teaching of
language and linguistics (K. Janicki, T. De Rycker, A. De Schr yver),
and localism (F. Brisard).
