Abstract:

This volume aims to arrive at a fine-grained and grammar-basedunderstanding of the notions of (inter-)subjectivity and(inter-)subjectification in their application to grammaticalizationresearch. In terms of linguistic theory, position is taken vis-à-visexisting approaches to (inter-)subjectification which are either too narrowor too general by addressing two questions: (i) what is the relationbetween (inter-)subjectivity and pragmatics, and (ii) on what grounds cansubjective and intersubjective meanings be distinguished?

In the descriptive sections of the volume, these theoretical considerationsare confronted with extensive analytical, and often also quantitative,study of empirical data mainly from English but also from Romancelanguages. The focus in these case studies is on the analytical anddiachronic relations between subjectivity and intersubjectivity, withparticular emphasis on the question how linguistic syntagms may shifttowards the expression of meanings of which the hearer is an essentialpart. The domains covered include adverbials and modals, but also the nounphrase, to date a relatively under-researched area in grammaticalizationstudies. Together these three areas ensure broad verification of existinghypotheses about the relative order in which subjectification andintersubjectification take place.

This volume is mainly of interest to researchers and graduate students witha special interest in subjectification, intersubjectification andgrammaticalization, and with a general interest in language change. Thevolume will also be welcomed by functional linguists (in a broad sense),since it is the first to bring eclectic functionalists' reflections to bearso explicitly on grammaticalization.
