Abstract:

How do new ways of encoding valence alternations emerge, how and why do
they spread, and what are the consequences of their emergence and spread
for already existing patterns?

This book discusses these questions on the basis of a concrete example of
valence alternation, the French causative-anticausative alternation. The
main focus of the proposed analysis is the anticausative member of the
alternation and the relation between the two formal types of anticausative
verbs in French, the reflexive and the unmarked anticausative (La branche
s'est cassée vs. La branche a cassé 'The branch broke'). The emergence and
spread of the reflexive anticausative, the consequences of these processes
for the unmarked anticausative and the semantic relation between reflexive
and unmarked anticausatives are analyzed on the basis of several corpus
studies.
