These two volumes offer a selection of papers from the Third 
International Conference New Reflections on Grammaticalization, held 
in Santiago de Compostela in July 2005. From the rich programme of 
the conference (over 120 papers), the twelve contributions included 
in this volume were carefully selected to reflect the state of 
current research in grammaticalization and suggest possible 
directions for future investigations in the field. Combining 
theoretical discussions with the analysis of particular test cases 
from a wide range of languages from various language families, the 
selected papers focus on such central questions as the need for a 
broader notion of grammaticalization, the distorting effects of 
grammaticalization on grammar, the areal perspective in 
grammaticalization and the relevance of contact-induced change to 
grammaticalization. Other topics discussed include the development of 
markers of textual connectivity and the emergence of cardinal 
numerals and numeral systems.
