Abstract:

This book advances research on grammatical change and shows the breadth andliveliness of the field. Leading international scholars report and reflecton the latest research into the nature and outcomes of all aspects ofsyntactic change including grammaticalization, variation, complementation,syntactic movement, determiner-phrase syntax, pronominal systems, casesystems, negation, and alignment. The authors deploy a variety ofgenerative frameworks, including minimalist and optimality theoretic, andbring these to bear on a wide range of languages: among the latter aretypologically distinct examples from Germanic, Romance, Slavic, Greek,Korean and Japanese, Austronesian, Celtic, and Nahuatl. They draw onsociolinguistic evidence where appropriate. Taken as a whole, the volumeprovides a stimulating overview of key current issues in the investigationof the origins, nature, and outcome of syntactic change.
