Abstract: The aim of this chapter is to briefly describe and evaluate some recent accounts of pragmatic aspects of grammaticalization. In evaluating these accounts, the following questions will be borne in mind:/L/1. Which inferences contribute to grammaticalization and what distinguishes them from the majority of inferences which have no lasting effect on language? /L/2. How does inferential (extra-linguistic) meaning become encoded (linguistic) meaning?/L/3. What is the role of context in grammaticalization? /L/4. What are the limits of the contribution of pragmatic inference to grammaticalization?
