The contributions during this quantity hide quite a lot of theoretical and methodological concerns and lift a few new questions that point out the longer term course of grammaticalization stories. the quantity specializes in matters akin to grammaticalization and lexicalization; the unidirectionality speculation; the difficulty of the relevance of contexts for grammaticalization; the outline of grammaticalization paths. a lot of the present paintings concentrates on such different types, as discourse markers, honorifics or classifiers, that have no longer formerly been principal to works on grammaticalization. different reports take a brand new viewpoint on recognized grammaticalization paths through making use of techniques followed from different linguistic fields, corresponding to prototype thought, morphocentricity, or by means of discussing their findings from a comparative or typological perspective, featuring information from numerous languages, usually in keeping with broad empirical investigations of written and spoken textual content corpora.
