Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 119
Description:

This volume contains a selection of papers on grammaticalization from a
broad perspective. Some of the papers focus on basic concepts in
grammaticalization research such as the concept of 'grammar' as the
endpoint of grammaticalization processes, erosion, (uni)directionality, the
relation between grammaticalization and constructions, subjectification,
and the relation between grammaticalization and analogy. Other papers shed
a critical light on grammaticalization as an explanatory parameter in
language change. New case studies of micro-processes of grammaticalization
complete the selection. The empirical evidence for (and against)
grammaticalization comes from diverse domains: subject control, clitics,
reciprocal markers, pronouns and agreement markers, gender markers,
auxiliaries, aspectual categories, intensifying adjectives and determiners,
and pragmatic markers.

The languages covered include English and its varieties, German, Dutch,
Italian, Spanish, French, Slavonic languages, and Turkish.

The book will be valuable to scholars working on grammaticalization and
language change as well as to those interested in individual languages.
