Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Meeting Description:

Grammaticalization is a uni-directional process in which lexical items acquire grammatical functions and grammatical items expressing semantic functions acquire more abstract semantic or pragmatic functions. In this process formal changes are secondary to functional changes in the sense that changed forms reflect contentive change. Although this process is gradual, we believe that focal points can be identified and defined in terms of necessary and sufficient conditions.
