Aspects of Grammaticalization : Inter-subjectification and Directionality (Hardcover)
about this item
This volume brings together a number of papers focusing on three important dimensions which have shown to be crucial in grammaticalization research, namely, the interrelation between grammaticalization (in the structural domain) and (inter)subjectification (in the semantic domain); analogy as a possible driving force in the grammaticalization process, and the teleology of grammaticalization (is grammaticalization unidirectional or not?).
