Abstract:

In every language there are descriptive lexical elements, such as evening
and whisper, as well as grammatical elements, such as the and -ing. The
distinction between these two elements has proven useful in a number of
domains, but what is covered by the terms, lexical and grammatical, and the
basis on which the distinction is made, appear to vary according to the
domain involved. This book analyses the grammatical elements ('functional
categories') in language, a topic that has drawn considerable attention in
linguistics, but has never been approached from an integrated,
cross-disciplinary perspective. Muysken considers functional categories
from the perspective of grammar, language history, language contact and
psychology (including child language and aphasia). Empirically based, the
book examines the available converging evidence from these various
disciplines, and draws on comparative data from a wide range of different
languages.
