Typology and grammaticalization

(p.1) 1 Introduction
Grammaticalization from a Typological Perspective

Heiko Narrog

Bernd Heine

Oxford University Press

This chapter introduces the goal of this volume: to identify aspects of grammaticalization that correlate with typological features of languages. It sets out the question of what ultimately drives or motivates grammaticalization and the role that typological features play—mainly phonological and morphological features but also, to a lesser extent, in syntax and semantics. The chapter then outlines the structure of the volume, the content of the chapters, and the relationship between them.

Keywords:   grammaticalization, typological features, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics
