Book Information


Title: Rethinking Grammaticalization. New perspectives & Theoretical and Empirical Issues in Grammaticalization
Edited By: María José López-Couso
Elena Seoane
Series Title: Typological Studies in Language 76-77

In collaboration with Teresa Fanego

These two volumes offer a selection of papers from the Third
International Conference New Reflections on Grammaticalization
, held in
Santiago de Compostela in July 2005. From the rich programme of the
conference (over 120 papers), the twelve contributions included in this
volume were carefully selected to reflect the state of current research in
grammaticalization and suggest possible directions for future
investigations in the field. Combining theoretical discussions with the
analysis of particular test cases from a wide range of languages from
various language families, the selected papers focus on such central
questions as the need for a broader notion of grammaticalization, the
distorting effects of grammaticalization on grammar, the areal perspective
in grammaticalization and the relevance of contact-induced change to
grammaticalization. Other topics discussed include the development of
markers of textual connectivity and the emergence of cardinal numerals and
numeral systems.
