Abstract:

In collaboration with Teresa Fanego

This volume and its companion one Theoretical and empirical issues in
grammaticalization
offer a selection of papers from the Third
International Conference New Reflections on Grammaticalization
, held in
Santiago de Compostela in July 2005. From the rich programme of the
conference (over 120 papers), the twelve contributions included in this
volume were carefully selected to reflect the state of current research in
grammaticalization and suggest possible directions for future
investigations in the field. Combining theoretical discussions with the
analysis of particular test cases from a wide range of languages from
various language families, the selected papers focus on such central
questions as the need for a broader notion of grammaticalization, the
distorting effects of grammaticalization on grammar, the areal perspective
in grammaticalization and the relevance of contact-induced change to
grammaticalization. Other topics discussed include the development of
markers of textual connectivity and the emergence of cardinal numerals and
numeral systems.

Abstract:

In collaboration with Teresa Fanego

This volume and its companion one Rethinking Grammaticalization: New
perspectives
offer a selection of papers from the Third
International Conference New Reflections on Grammaticalization
, held at
the University of Santiago de Compostela in July 2005. The overall aim of
the book is to enrich our understanding of what grammaticalization entails
via detailed case studies in combination with theoretical and
methodological discussions. Some of the theoretical issues discussed in the
sixteen articles included in the volume are the nature of
grammaticalization and related processes such as anti-, re- and
degrammaticalization, the relationship between grammaticalization and
lexicalization, the role of frequency in grammaticalization and the
interplay between information structure and grammaticalization. Other
topics covered are the grammaticalization of composite predicates in
English, the emergence of modal particles in German and particle clusters
in Dutch and the grammaticalization of various modal auxiliaries in Spanish
and in Swedish.
