Abstract:

This book advances research on grammatical change and shows the breadth and
liveliness of the field. Leading international scholars report and reflect
on the latest research into the nature and outcomes of all aspects of
syntactic change including grammaticalization, variation, complementation,
syntactic movement, determiner-phrase syntax, pronominal systems, case
systems, negation, and alignment. The authors deploy a variety of
generative frameworks, including minimalist and optimality theoretic, and
bring these to bear on a wide range of languages: among the latter are
typologically distinct examples from Germanic, Romance, Slavic, Greek,
Korean and Japanese, Austronesian, Celtic, and Nahuatl. They draw on
sociolinguistic evidence where appropriate. Taken as a whole, the volume
provides a stimulating overview of key current issues in the investigation
of the origins, nature, and outcome of syntactic change.
