Meaning Change in Grammaticalization

This chapter delineates the issues and questions in diachronic linguistics that are addressed in the book. It's purpose is twofold: it introduces the current debate and criticizes earlier theories of meaning change in grammaticalization, specifically the metaphor approach, the metonymy approach, and bleaching. Finally, this chapter points out that semantic reanalysis is a process visible, but not limited, to grammaticalization phenomena. The emergence of discourse particles offers another domain where semantic reanalysis can be observed.

Keywords:   metaphor, metonymy, bleaching, discourse particles, language change
