Network Core Mechanisms of Exponence

Joseph, Brian (2003)

Abstract

Brian Joseph takes a new look at the emergence of grammatical elements. Rather than following the classic concept of grammaticalisation as one means of characterizing morphemes he focuses on morphologisation- a process in which element(s) come to be a part of the morphological component although they were not a matter of morphology previously. He compares grammaticalisation to morphologisation using a Greek future marker as an example. He voices criticism of assumptions made in grammaticalisation theory and notes the importance of considering both the structure of a language and ‘emergent grammar’.
