Abstract:

This volume of selected papers from the 20th International Conference on
Historical Linguistics (Osaka, Japan, July 2011) presents a set of stimulating
and ground-breaking studies on a wide range of languages and language
families. As the scope of studies that can be characterized as ‘Historical
Linguistics’ has expanded, ICHL conferences have likewise seen a broadening of
topics presented, and this conference was no exception, reflected by the
inclusion in this volume of a plenary presentation on the grammaticalization
of expressions of negation and gendered kinship in American Sign Language.
Three other papers propose new views of the role of grammaticalization in
English, Chinese, and Niger-Congo languages. Four of the papers discuss
specific problems that arise in the comparison and reconstruction of
linguistic features in a range of languages from Asia, Europe and South
America. The last six studies deal with innovative approaches to the
historical development of suppletion in Romance languages, possessive
classifiers in Austronesian, universal quantifiers in Germanic, adjectival
sequences in English, exaptation in Celtic and Early English, and drift in
Ancient Egyptian.
