Aston University and Birmingham City University are delighted to announce the following series of one-day seminars on Cycles of Grammaticalization, funded under the International Network programme by the Leverhulme Trust. The seminars will seek to elucidate and diagnose the complex series of factors that lead to grammatical change through time, with particular reference to the negation cycle in English, French and German.

The research objectives are to establish:
1. the definition of criteria for determining when a polarity item becomes a negative element, and 2. the means to recognise the presence of a negative phrase. The relation between formal and functional factors, reanalysis and language learning, dialect competition and language contact, as well as diachronic data closer to everyday usage will also be considered. Attendance is free of any charge and warmly invited.

Aston University, room G8, 14h-17h
