    Whenever the coefficient of variation seems natural, that's usually a sign that analyses should be conducted on a logarithmic scale. If CV is (approximately) constant, then SD is proportional to the mean, which goes with comparisons and changes being multiplicative rather than additive, which implies thinking logarithmically. of contact-induced grammaticalization: the emergence of already as a marker of aspect is a case of ‘ordinary’ contact-induced grammaticalization, and the devel-opment of grammatical functions of give a case of replica grammaticalization as defined by Heine and Kuteva (, ). A .   The study of grammaticalization raises a number of fundamental theoretical issues pertaining to the relation of langue and parole, creativity and automatic coding, synchrony and diachrony, categoriality and continua, typological characteristics and language-specific forms, etc., and therefore challenges some of the basic tenets of twentieth century :

Köp Grammaticalization and Parametric Variation av Montserrat Batllori, Maria-Lluisa Hernanz, Carme Picallo, Francesc Roca på In historical linguistics and language change, grammaticalization (also known as grammatization or grammaticization) is a process of language change by which words representing objects and actions (i.e.

nouns and verbs) become grammatical markers (affixes, prepositions, etc.).Thus it creates new function words by a process other than deriving them from existing bound, inflectional.

Abstract. During the last decade, a new research strategy has gained importance in the field of theoretical linguistics. This strategy is often referred to as parametric variation as it aims to account for certain systematic patterns of variation among natural languages in terms of setting parameters.

In this paper we will first look at the original motivation for this line of inquiry as it. Parametric variation in linguistic theory refers to the systematic grammatical variation permitted by the human language faculty.

Although still widely assumed, the parametric theory of variation. grammaticalization is characterized by three types of expansion ( 32– has been built to account in part for cross-linguistic typological variation, and in part for grammaticalization.

It therefore seems especially well suited for developing a more articulated approach to the correlations betweenFile Size: KB.

This book is a defence of the parametric approach to linguistic variation, set within the framework of the Minimalist by:   The phenomenon of grammaticalization--the historical process whereby new grammatical material is created--has attracted a great deal of attention within linguistics in recent years.

However, until now no attempt has been made to provide a general account of this phenomenon in terms of a formal theory of syntax. This book shows how this approach gives rise to a number of important conceptual 5/5(1). It's hard to judge a book coming from a framework you're critical of.

The authors did a great work and everything but I often feel generativists are trying to fit a square in a circular-shaped hole. I'm just a PhD student and there's plenty I don't know, but this is the impression I have when I compare this with " Grammaticalization "/5.

What is grammar. Why does it exist. What difference, if any, does it make to the organization of meaning. This book seeks to give principled answers to these questions. Its topic is 'universal' grammar, in the sense that grammar is universal to human populations.

But while modern generative grammar stands in the tradition of 'Cartesian linguistics' as emerging in the 17th century, this book re. ‘ DPs in French and Walloon: evidence for parametric variation in nominal head movement ’, Probus –26 Bernstein, J. ‘The DP hypothesis: identifying clausal properties in the nominal domain’, in M.

In this book, leading scholars consider the ways in which syntactic variation can be accounted for in a minimalist framework. They explore the theoretical significance, content, and role of parameters; whether or not variation should be strongly or weakly accounted for by syntactic factors; and the explicitness - or lack thereof - that should be assumed with respect to the conditions imposed.

A new post-verbal negative marker ‘not’ emerges in early English through a process of grammaticalization. The grammaticalization of new sentential scope negative markers often results from cyclic change, as described by Jespersen (), and well attested crosslinguistically.

In early English, this change involves 3 stages. In the first stage negation is marked by a pre-verbal particle : Phillip Wallage. Introduction The title of this volume, Grammaticalization and Parametric Variation, is intended to capture the continuation of a tradition in the Weld of historical linguistics as well as the theoretical assumptions that have guided the study of grammatical variation and change in recent decades under the generative framework.

They examine the evolution of a variety of syntactic phenomena, including the elimination or diminishing of certain facts or generalization of others, the total or partial grammaticalization of phenomena, competition between structures, and cases of syntactic variation.

The book takes a typological and comparative perspective, focusing on those. In a series of close examinations of languages from old Egyptian to modern Afrikaans, leading scholars present new work on Afro-Asiatic, Latin and Romance, Germanic, Albanian, Celtic, Indo-Iranian, and Japanese.

AbstractThis paper looks at constructions with non-clitic auxiliaries in Old Romanian, which precede the generalized option for clitic auxiliaries in the same language. We argue that non-clitic auxiliaries belong to a grammar with genuine SVO, scrambling to Spec, AspP, and subject-auxiliary inversion (SAI as AUX-to Fin).

Parametric variation is a case study in parametric approaches to crosslinguistic variation, as well as an argument in favor of such an approach. It frames the discussion of parameters around various types of null-subject languages (NSLs) and the null-subject parameter (NSP) as the parameter governing their crosslinguistic distribution.
