Abstract:

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
existing corpora and established corpus-linguistic methodology for
their work. This book continues and develops the dialogue between the
two fields. All the contributions are based on extensive use of
various electronic corpora. Relating corpus practices to recent
theoretical concerns of grammaticalization studies they deal with
grammaticalization and historical sociolinguistics, lexicalization and
grammaticalization, layering, frequency, grammaticalization and
dialects, degrammaticalization and grammaticalization in a contrastive
perspective. The papers show that a synthesis of corpus methodology
and grammaticalization studies leads to new and interesting insights
about the mechanisms of language change and the communicative
functions of language.
