I have come accross a strange comitative-like marker in one of the
Nakh-Dagestanian languages. By comitative I mean a (nominal) meaning
'together with', usually expressed by a special case or an adposition.
Are there any works concerning the grammaticalization of comitative?
What are the possible diachronic sources of comitative markers?
Are there typological works investigating the range of meanings which
comitative markers (cases, adpositions) usually have?
Does anyone know examples when a comitative marker appeared as a result of
reanalysis of a clause dependency marker?
Has anyone come accross a ''transcategorial'' use of a comitative marker
when it can occur with verbal forms, not only with nouns?
Thanks in advance for any information,
