Second Call for Papers

International Conference on Grammaticalization and (Inter)Subjectification

November 11-13, 2010 - Brussels (Belgium)

Conference website:

We invite papers dealing with any aspect of the processes of grammaticalization and (inter)subjectification, both empirical and conceptual, from any theoretical angle, but we are especially interested in papers dealing with

* the interaction between the processes of grammaticalization and (inter)subjectification;

* the relation of grammaticalization and (inter)subjectification to other mechanisms of language change, including, most notably, analogy; and

* processes of degrammaticalization and de-(inter)subjectification: how (in)frequent are they, what kinds of factors trigger them, and what mechanisms are at work in them?

Presentations are 20 minutes, followed by 5 minutes discussion.

Abstracts of max. 4000 characters (i.e. app. 500 words; including references) should be submitted via the conference website.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: February 15, 2010
