Title: Constructions and Language Change
Edited By: Alexander Th. Bergs
Gabriele Diewald
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110198669-1
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 194
Description:

Studies in diachronic linguistics increasingly acknowledge that linguistic
change is highly context-dependent and somehow tied to constructions as
linguistic units. This is the first volume to investigate the role of
constructions and the potential of constructional approaches in linguistic
change. The contributions in this volume comprise both theoretical and
empirical studies, all of which are accessible for a general audience.
While some contributions explicitly aim at comparing and unifying concepts
from both traditional grammatical theories and recent construction grammar
approaches, others offer detailed case studies of exemplary problems from a
constructional point of view. The papers offer a cross-linguistic
perspective and deal with a number of different language families, ranging
from Germanic to Austronesian.
