Abstract:

The volume presents new insights into two basic theoretical issues hotlydebated in recent work on grammaticalization and language contact:grammatical replication and grammatical borrowability. The key issues are: Howcan grammatical replication be distinguished from other, superficially similarprocesses of contact-induced linguistic change, and under what conditions doesit take place? Are there grammatical morphemes or constructions that are moreeasily borrowed than others, and how can language contact account for arealbiases in the borrowing (vs. calquing) of grammatical formatives? The book is amajor contribution to the ongoing theoretical discussion concerning therelationship between grammaticalization and language contact on a broadempirical basis.
