Abstract:

Lexicalization, a process of language change, has been conceptualized in a
variety of ways. Broadly defined as the adoption of concepts into the
lexicon, it has been viewed by syntacticians as the reverse process of
grammaticalization, by morphologists as a routine process of
word-formation, and by semanticists as the development of concrete
meanings. In this up-to-date survey, Laurel Brinton and Elizabeth Traugott
examine the various conceptualizations of lexicalization that have been
presented in the literature. In light of contemporary work on
grammaticalization, they then propose a new, unified model of
lexicalization and grammaticalization. Their approach is illustrated with a
variety of case studies from the history of English, including present
participles, multi-word verbs, adverbs, and discourse markers, as well as
some examples from other Indo-European languages. The first review of the
various approaches to lexicalization, this book will be invaluable to
students and scholars of historical linguistics and language change.
