Abstract:

This book develops an approach to language change based on construction
grammar in order to reconceptualize grammaticalization and lexicalization.
Basing their argument on the notions that language is made up of
language-specific form-meaning pairings and of a gradient between lexical and
grammatical constructions, Professor Traugott and Professor Trousdale suggest
that language change proceeds by micro-steps that involve closely related
changes in syntax, morphology, phonology, semantics, pragmatics, and discourse
functions. They examine numerous English examples drawn from Old to
contemporary English to the present. Constructionalization and Constructional
Changes propounds and demonstrates a new and productive approach to historical
linguistics.
