This is a book about degrammaticalization, a rare type of linguistic change whereby grams become ‘less grammatical’, typical examples being shifts from affix to clitic, or from function word to lexical item. It discusses the alleged unidirectionality of semantic and morphosyntactic change, showing that change is in fact reversible on all : Muriel Norde.

"Muriel Norde's Degrammaticalization is, amon the most important contribution to the field of grammaticalization research published in the last few years, and an indispensable guide not only to the more 'exotic' phenomenon of degrammaticalization, but also a critical and well-informed review of all the major conceptual issues in the study of grammatical change, as well."--Format: Paperback.

This is a book about degrammaticalization, a rare type of linguistic change whereby grams become 'less grammatical', typical examples being shifts from affix Degrammaticalization book clitic, or from function word to Author: Muriel Norde.

In this book Prof Norde shows that change is reversible on all levels: semantic, morphological, syntactic, and phonological. As a consequence, the alleged unidirectionality of grammaticalization is Author: Muriel Norde. Degrammaticalization is defined as a composite change whereby a gram in a specific context gains in autonomy or substance on one or more linguistic levels.

This chapter argues that degrammaticalization is a change in context, and that there are no degrammaticalization clines.

Muriel Norde's Degrammaticalization is, amon the most important contribution to the field of grammaticalization research published in the last few years, and an indispensable guide not only to the more 'exotic' phenomenon of degrammaticalization, but also a critical and well-informed review of all the major conceptual issues in the study of grammatical change, as well.

This book aims to give a comprehensive account of grammaticalization. It serves as a great introduction to this linguistic notion. it also serves as a good textbook for whoever interested in linguistics.

The term "grammaticalization" is thought to have originated with Meillet (, but first published in )/5. Grammaticalization is a well-attested process of linguistic change in which a lexical item becomes a function word, which may be further reduced to a clitic or affix. Proponents of the universality of grammaticalization have usually argued that it is unidirectional and have thus found it a useful tool in linguistic reconstruction.

Proponents of the universality of grammaticalization have usually argued that it is unidirectional and have thus found it a useful tool in linguistic reconstruction. In historical linguistics and language change, grammaticalization (also known as grammatization or grammaticization) is a process of language change by which words representing objects and actions (i.e.

nouns and verbs) become grammatical markers (affixes, prepositions, etc.).Thus it creates new function words by a process other than deriving them from existing bound, inflectional. Muriel Norde's Degrammaticalization is, amon the most important contribution to the field of grammaticalization research published in the last few years, and an indispensable guide not only to the.

In this book Prof Norde shows that change is reversible on all levels: semantic, morphological, syntactic, and phonological. As a consequence, the alleged unidirectionality of grammaticalization is not a reliable reconstructional tool, even if degrammaticalization is a rare phenomenon.

This article considers the relationship between exaptation and degrammaticalization. Both may involve obsolescent material being re-used, to express an existing grammatical category or a category not previously encoded.

The processes involved are familiar ones: reanalysis triggering category reassignment. In both cases, change is caused by failure to acquire a grammatical by: 1. The term ‘degrammaticalization’, originally coined by Lehmann in for a supposedly non-existent phenomenon, soon came to be applied to a number of often entirely different changes.

Since such ‘counterexamples’ pose a potential challenge to the unidirectionality of grammaticalization, they have been the focus of much attention from grammaticalizationists and grammaticalization.

The contributions in this volume cover a wide range of theoretical and methodological issues and raise a number of new questions that indicate the future direction of grammaticalization studies. The volume focuses on issues such as grammaticalization and lexicalization; the unidirectionality hypothesis; the issue of the relevance of contexts for grammaticalization; the description of /5(2).

Book description This is a general introduction to grammaticalization, the change whereby lexical terms and constructions come in certain linguistic contexts to serve grammatical functions, and, once grammaticalized, continue to develop new grammatical functions.

Globally, one of the best known examples of degrammaticalization is the development of the North Saami adpo-File Size: KB. Grammaticalization is an important concept in general and typological linguistics and a prominent type of explanation in historical linguistics. For historical corpus linguists, grammaticalization theory provides a frame of orientation in their effort to analyze and systematize a fast-accumulating mass of data.

Students of grammaticalization have become increasingly aware of the potential of. There is a continual growth of interest among linguists of all-theoretical denominations in grammaticalization, a concept central to many linguistic (change) theories. However, the discussion of grammaticalization processes has often suffered from a shortage of concrete empirical studies from one of the best-documented languages in the world, English.Degrammaticalization of the genitive is a gradual process that has still not been completed, as some types of group genitive are (still) ungrammatical, e.g.
