Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics; Pragmatics; Semantics

Meeting Description:

Recent years have seen much interest in the question as to how meaning in
language arises over time, both with respect to grammatical morphemes
(grammaticalization) and to pragmatic markers (you know, well,
etc.). Such forms have procedural, as opposed to conceptual, meaning. There has
been a quite lively debate as to how these patterns relate both to each other
and to more general principles of language change. This workshop intends to take
a fresh look at semantic change and to explore whether there is a principled
basis for nuanced pathways of change. The speakers will look at instances of
change from various European languages.
