Title: Gradience, Gradualness and Grammaticalization
Edited By: Elizabeth Closs Traugott
Graeme Trousdale
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=TSL%2090
Series Title: Typological Studies in Language 90
Description:

This volume, which emerged from a workshop at the New Reflections on
Grammaticalization 4
conference held at KU Leuven in July 2008,
contains a collection of papers which investigate the relationship between
synchronic gradience and the apparent gradualness of linguistic change,
largely from the perspective of grammaticalization. In addition to versions
of the papers presented at the workshop, the volume contains specially
commissioned contributions, some of which offer commentaries on a subset of
the other articles. The articles address a number of themes central to
grammaticalization studies, such as the role of reanalysis and analogy in
grammaticalization, the formal modelling of grammaticalization, and the
relationship between formal and functional change, using data from a range
of languages, and (in some cases) from particular electronic corpora. The
volume will be of specific interest to historical linguists working on
grammaticalization, and general linguists working on the interface between
synchrony and diachrony.
