Abstract:

The status of grammaticalization has been the subject of many controversial
discussions. The contributions to What makes Grammaticalization? approach
the prevalent phenomenon from the angle of language structure and focus on
the interrelation between the levels of phonology, pragmatics (inference),
discourse and the lexicon and some of them try to integrate the areal
perspective. A wealth of data from Slavonic languages as well as from
languages of other genetic and areal affiliation is discussed. The book is
of interest to linguists specializing in grammaticalization,
lexicalization, and morphological typology, to language typologists as
well as to functional, historical and, cognitive linguists.

Walter Bisang is Professor of Linguistics at Mainz University, Germany.

Nikolaus Himmelmann is Professor of Linguistics at Ruhr University Bochum,
Germany.

Björn Wiemer teaches at the University of Konstanz, Germany.
