Message 2: World Lexicon of Grammaticalization

Subject: World Lexicon of Grammaticalization

World Lexicon of Grammaticalization
Bernd Heine, Universit�t zu K�ln, Germany
Tania Kuteva, University of D^D"usseldorf, Germany

While the comparative method is concerned with regularities in
phonological change, grammaticalization theory deals with regularities
of grammatical change. In an A-Z format, this book summarizes the most
salient generalizations that have been made on the unidirectional
change of grammatical forms and constructions. It thus demonstrates
that grammatical change is regular and also adds to our knowledge of
universal properties of human languages. Indices organized by source
and target concepts allow for flexible use, and the findings
delineated in the book are relevant to students of language across
theoretical boundaries
