Abstract:

This collective volume focuses on the crucial role of formal evidence in
recognizing and explaining instances of grammaticalization. It addresses the
hitherto neglected issue of system-internal factors steering grammaticalization
and also revisits formal recognition criteria such as Lehmann and Hopper's
parameters of grammaticalization. The articles investigate developments of such
phenomena as modal auxiliaries, attitudinal markers, V1-conditionals,
nominalizers, and pronouns, using data from a wide range of languages and (in
some cases) from diachronic corpora. In the process, they explore finer
mechanisms of grammaticalization such as modification of coding means,
structural and semantic analogy, changes in frequency and prosody, and shifts in
collocational and grammatical distribution. The volume is of particular interest
to historical linguists working on grammaticalization, and general linguists
working on the interface between syntax, semantics and pragmatics, as well as
that between synchrony and diachrony.
