Clausal connection is one of the key building blocks of language and thus a field where a wide range of syntactic, semantic, pragmatic and cognitive phenomena meet. The availability of large databases as well as considerable advances in corpus-linguistic methods have strengthened the interest in the history of features linking clauses or larger chunks of text. The papers in this volume combine a thorough corpus-based analysis of the history of individual connectives, their co-occurrence patterns, and patterns of variation and change from both intra- and inter-systemic perspectives with a variety of methodological tools, ranging from sophisticated methods of grammatical analysis to pragmatics, text linguistics and discourse analysis. Drawing on quantitatively and qualitatively improved data, the studies reconstruct the history of a wide range of connectives in English from various new theoretical perspectives.

Table of Contents
“[...] an important and very informative contribution to the study of the historical development of connectives in English and European languages in general.”
“[...] its potential readership goes far beyond those interested in English historical linguistics, as the volume will also be rewarding for those working on clause combining and grammaticalisation processes in general.”
“[..] a coherent volume which may be regarded as definitive in its niche area.”
