Abstract:

This volume contains a selection of papers on grammaticalization from abroad perspective. Some of the papers focus on basic concepts ingrammaticalization research such as the concept of 'grammar' as theendpoint of grammaticalization processes, erosion, (uni)directionality, therelation between grammaticalization and constructions, subjectification,and the relation between grammaticalization and analogy. Other papers sheda critical light on grammaticalization as an explanatory parameter inlanguage change. New case studies of micro-processes of grammaticalizationcomplete 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 andlanguage change as well as to those interested in individual languages.
