Abstract:

The phenomenon of grammaticalization--the historical process whereby
new grammatical material is created--has attracted a great deal of
attention within linguistics in recent years. This book shows how this
approach leads to a number of important conceptual and theoretical
issues concerning the nature of functional categories and the form of
parameters, as well as the relation of both of these to language
change.
