9780199679898: Constructionalization and Constructional Changes (Oxford Studies in Diachronic and Historical Linguistics)

In this book Elizabeth Closs Traugott and Graeme Trousdale develop an approach to language change based on construction grammar. Construction grammar is a theory of signs construed at the level of the phrase, clause, and complex sentence. Until now it has been mainly synchronic. The authors use it to reconceptualize grammaticalization (the process by which verbs like 'to have' lose semantic content and gain grammatical functions, or word order is reorganised as syntax-prominent rather than discourse-prominent), and lexicalization (in which idioms become fixed and complex words simplified). Basing their argument on the notions that language is made up of language-specific form-meaning pairings and that there is a gradient between lexical and grammatical constructions, Professor Traugott and Dr Trousdale suggest that language change proceeds by micro-steps that involve closely related changes in syntax, morphology, phonology, semantics, pragmatics, and discourse functions. They illustrate their exposition with numerous English examples drawn from Anglo-Saxon times to the present, many of which they discuss in depth.

The book is organized in six chapters. The first outlines the approach and the questions to be addressed, while the second reviews usage-based models of language change, and the third considers the relation between grammatical constructionalization and grammaticalization. Chapters 4 and 5 focus respectively on lexical constructionalization and the role of context, before the final chapter draws the authors' arguments together and outlines prospects for further research. Constructionalization and Constructional Changes propounds and demonstrates a new and productive approach to historical linguistics.

About the Author :


Elizabeth Traugott is Professor Emerita of Linguistics and English at Stanford University. Her many publications include Grammaticalization (1993 with Paul Hopper, revised ed. 2003), Regularity in Semantic Change (2002 with Richard Dasher), and Lexicalization and Language Change (2005 with Laurel Brinton).

Graeme Trousdale is senior lecturer in English Language at the University of Edinburgh. His publications include An Introduction to English Sociolinguistics (2010) and The Oxford Handbook of Construction Grammar (2013, co-edited with Thomas Hoffmann).

Review :

Constructionalization and Constructional Changes represents a highly inspiring contribution to studies on language change in general and to the budding filed of diachronic construction grammar in particular, in which it will definitely become a standard reference work. * Judith Huber, Functions of Language * [T]he qualitative framework presented in this monograph is without any doubt a most admirable synthesis of current historical analysis within the framework of construction grammar, and will inspire nearly any linguist interested in language change. * Peter Petre, Diachronica *
