Title: Grammatical Replication and Borrowability in Language Contact

Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 242
Description:

The volume presents new insights into two basic theoretical issues hotly
debated in recent work on grammaticalization and language contact:
grammatical replication and grammatical borrowability. The key issues are: How
can grammatical replication be distinguished from other, superficially similar
processes of contact-induced linguistic change, and under what conditions does
it take place? Are there grammatical morphemes or constructions that are more
easily borrowed than others, and how can language contact account for areal
biases in the borrowing (vs. calquing) of grammatical formatives? The book is a
major contribution to the ongoing theoretical discussion concerning the
relationship between grammaticalization and language contact on a broad
empirical basis.
