Abstract:

The product of a group of scholars who have been working on new directions
in Historical Linguistics, this book is focused on questions of grammatical
change, and the central issue of grammaticalization in Indo-European
languages. Several studies examine particular problems in specific
languages, but often with implications for the IE phylum as a whole. Given
the historical scope of the data (over a period of four millennia) long
range grammatical changes such as the development of gender differences,
strategies of definiteness, the prepositional phrase, or of the syntax of
the verbal diathesis and aspect, are also treated. The shifting relevance
of morphology to syntax, and syntax to morphology, a central motif of this
research, has provoked lively debate in the discipline of Historical
Linguistics.

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics
