Title: Layering of Size and Type Noun Constructions in English
Written By: Lieselotte Brems
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/128977?result=1&rskey=Lzsr9U&format=G
Series Title: Topics in English Linguistics [TiEL] 74
Description:

On the basis of synchronic and diachronic data analysis, the volume takes a
close look at the synchronic layers of binominal size noun and type noun uses
(a bunch/a load of X; a sort of X; a Y type of X) and reconsiders the framework
of grammaticalization in view of issues raised by the phrases under discussion.
As a result, a construction grammar-approach to grammaticalization is
developed which does justice to the syntagmatic lexical, or collocational,
reclustering observed in the data within an eclectic cognitive-functional
approach.
