Brems, Lieselotte

Layering of Size and Type Noun Constructions in English

Series:Topics in English Linguistics [TiEL] 74

DE GRUYTER MOUTON

    Aims and Scope

    On the basis of synchronic and diachronic data analysis, the volume takes a close look at the synchronic layers of binominal size noun and type noun uses (a bunch/a load of X; a sort of X; a Y type of X) and reconsiders the framework of grammaticalization in view of issues raised by the phrases under discussion. As a result, a construction grammar-approach to grammaticalization is developed which does justice to the syntagmatic lexical, or collocational, reclustering observed in the data within an eclectic cognitive-functional approach.
