Connectors in Early New High German: Lines of Development of Causal Connections in the Realm of Modality

Entwicklungslinien kausaler Verknüpfungen auf dem Gebiet der Modalität

This diachronic, corpus-based study documents grammaticalization processes and the syntactic, semantic, and above all pragmatic properties of causal connectors in Early New High German, such as dieweil and denn, as well as derhalben and darum, along with the prepositions halben and wegen. Thanks to the use of modern descriptive models, the findings are also relevant for the analysis of modern German connectors.
