Subject: Historical change toward increased markedness
I'm looking for some clear examples of changes in linguistic
phenomena in the direction of INCREASED markedness over the course of
hist rical development. I'm interested in hearing about diachronic changes
at ANY level of representation (e.g., phonology, syntax, etc.).

Hi all,
I recently came across a book called _The Infinitive of Go_, and it made
me wonder what other books might have linguistic terminology in the title.
If people send mail to me directly, I can make a summary of the replies
and post it here.
