1 Laurel J. Brinton and Elizabeth Closs Traugott
Lexicalization and Language Change
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2005; 0521540631 / 9780521540636; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Lexicalization, a process of language change, has been conceptualized in a variety of ways. Broadly defined as the adoption of concepts into the lexicon, it has been viewed by syntacticians as the reverse process of grammaticalization, by morphologists as a routine process of word-formation, and by semanticists as the development of concrete meanings. In this up-to-date survey, Laurel Brinton and Elizabeth Traugott examine the various conceptualizations of lexicalization that have been presented in the literature. In light of contemporary work on grammaticalization, they then propose a new, unified model of lexicalization and grammaticalization. Their approach is illustrated with a variety of case studies from the history of English, including present participles, multi-word verbs, adverbs, and discourse markers, as well as some examples from other Indo-European languages. The first review of the various approaches to lexicalization, this book will be invaluable to students and scholars of historical linguistics and language change. The first ever review of the various approaches to lexicalization that have been presented in the literature Proposes a brand new, unified approach to lexicalization and grammaticalization Draws on a wealth of data from the history of English Contents 1.
