Meaning-change in the Development of Grammatical Markers.
Traugott, Elizabeth Cross
Language Sciences, v2 n1 p44-61 Mar 1980
Several hypotheses are developed concerning the semantic-pragmatic shifts that take place in the development of grammatical markers such as prepositions, auxiliary verbs and sentence connectives. Over time, grammatical markers shift from being primarily referential to more pragmatic meanings, from propositional to textual to attitudinal. (PMJ)
