I would like to thank John E. Koontz, Zygmunt Frajzyngier, Pierre

-Heine, Claudi, Huennemeyer, Grammaticalization 
-Traugott and Hopper, Grammaticalization
-Frajzyngier, Joseph Greenberg's article on the historical
 development of gender (and absolute) marking systems, in one of 
 the volumesof the series Universals of Human Language
