Abstract:

Research on nominalization, a process that gives rise to referring
expressions, has always played a central role in linguistic investigations.
Over the years there has also been growing evidence that nominalization
constructions often extend to non-referential domains. They participate in
noun-modifying expressions (e.g. genitive and relative clauses),
subordinate clauses and topic constructions, finite structures with the
nominalizers reanalyzed as TAM markers, and stance constructions with
evaluative, attitudinal, evidential and epistemic overtones. This volume
brings together historical and crosslinguistic evidence from more than 20
different languages representing six different language families spanning
the Asian continent and the Pacific and Indian oceans to elucidate the
strategies and grammaticalization pathways that give rise to both
referential and non-referential uses of nominalization constructions. This
collection highlights the diversity of strategies and at the same time the
robust cyclical nature of change within and across languages. The combined
diachronic and typological analyses in this volume are particularly
valuable for linguistic research on diachronic morphosyntax and linguistic
'universals', and are also an important supplementary cross-referencing
tool for linguistic investigations of versatile and ubiquitous morphemes in
under-documented languages.
