Recent typological studies by Heine and Song (, ) use four grammaticalization parameters (extension, desemanticization, decategorialization, and erosion) to analyze five major conceptual sources of personal pronouns: (a) nominal concepts, (b) spatial deixis (i.e. demonstratives), (c) reflexives/intensifiers, (d) plurification, and (e.

  ‘The Rise of Prescriptive Grammars on English in the 18th Century’ is the title of Miriam A. Locher’s article in the volume Standards and Norms in the English Language edited by Miriam A. Locher and Jürg Strässler (pp. –47). The author aims to (a) answer the question of why there was such an enormous increase of English grammars.   1. General. This year saw the publication of R.L.

AbstractThis paper provides an overview of suppletion phenomena in Zapotec. As established by previous cross-linguistic studies of suppletion, most suppletion phenomena in Zapotec occur in the verb system.

Nominal suppletion is attested in the possessed forms of selected nouns, such as tortilla, clothing, house, and pueblo, and the numeral system includes suppletive forms of the Author: Natalie Operstein.

The role of the co-verb ba in Mandarin Chinese has been one of the most frequently researched areas of investigation, previous analyses referring to notions such as disposal, definiteness, and high transitivity to describe its present grammatical status.

However, historical accounts appear to give insufficient attention to the development of resultivity or telicity in the by: 2.

Many linguists define classification systems in terms of semantic profiling. The classifier profiles a semantic trait common to all the classified items. This paper rejects semantic profiling in favor of a combinatorial definition of classification and evaluates verb classification in five languages of the Sinitic, Tai-Kadai, Miao-Yao and Tibeto-Burman families.

Only sortal verb classifiers in. Introduction. The claim that there are two types of grammaticalization that take place at two different diachronic stages is known since Kuryłowicz's () distinction between the development from “a lexical to a grammatical” and another development “from a less grammatical to a more grammatical status”.

Adverbial margins, which describe circumstances of situations in sentence nuclei, involve a varying of structural devices, including connectives, nominal forms, aspectually marked verbs, negation, and modality : Wendan Li.

The idea for this book arose in when I was coteaching a course titled “Grammar II” at the University of North Dakota. That course was taught to a mixed class of undergraduate and graduate students and was designed to cover the basics of typology, the basics of discourse, and the basics of Relational Grammar, all in the span of 10 weeks.

SUMMARY This book analyzes the syntax and semantics of Chinese (mostly Mandarin, but also Cantonese and Wu) numeral classifiers. In this paper, we trace from a constructionist perspective the diachronic development of the Chinese scalar additive coordinators meaning roughly ‘let alone’ derived from a prohibitive expression ‘don’t say’.

We argue that a construction schema formed by the combination of a prohibitive marker with a SAY verb conveying the scalar additive meaning may have been established in Ancient.
