Abstract:

This volume offers a coherent and detailed picture of the diachronic
development of verbal categories of Old English, Old High German, and other
Germanic languages. Starting from the observation that German and English show
diverging paths in the development of verbal categories, even though they
descended from a common ancestor language, the contributions present in-depth,
empirically founded studies on the stages and directions of these changes
combining historical comparative methods with grammaticalisation theory. This
collection of papers provides the reader with an indispensable source of
information on the early traces of distinct developments, thus laying the
foundation for a broad-scale scenario of the grammaticalisation of verbal
categories. The volume will be of particular interest to scholars of language
change, grammaticalisation, and diachronic sociolinguistics; it offers
important new insights for typologists and for everybody interested in the
make-up of verbal categories.
