Meeting Description:

Grammaticalization theory has been one of the most powerful frameworks of non-formal grammar in the past two decades internationally and has also increasingly engendered research in Japan in the past 10 or so years. Yet, despite the exponential increase in published research, and a strong research impetus originally coming from the study of African languages, main stream understanding of grammaticalization processes is still tightly bound to knowledge obtained from a very limited number of languages. However, studies on grammaticalization in less-studied languages give us good reason to believe that there are considerable differences in different types of languages especially with respect to formal aspects of grammaticalization. At this juncture, where grammaticalization research has greatly matured in general, the opportunity is ripe to investigate this issue in more depth.
