Diewald, Gabriele and Dániel Czicza 2022 Variation and Grammaticalization of Verbal ConstructionsVariation and Grammaticalization of Verbal Constructions, Czicza, Dániel and Gabriele Diewald (eds.), pp. 1–12 | Introduction
Construction grammar – most notably Cognitive Construction Grammar (Goldberg 2006), Radical Construction Grammar (Croft 2001) and Cognitive Grammar (Langacker 2008) – has been extremely inspiring in providing tools for modelling gradience in variation and change. Verbal constructions have been… read more
Diewald, Gabriele, Dániel Czicza and Volodymyr Dekalo 2022 Clause linkage and degrees of grammaticalization: The case of verdienen with correlated and non‑correlated dass- and infinitival complementsVariation and Grammaticalization of Verbal Constructions, Czicza, Dániel and Gabriele Diewald (eds.), pp. 181–223 | Article
This paper deals with different types of verbal complementation of the German verb verdienen. It focuses on constructions that have been undergoing a grammaticalization process and thus express deontic modality, as in Sie verdient geliebt zu werden (ʽShe deserves to be lovedʼ) and Sie verdient zu… read more
Diewald, Gabriele, Volodymyr Dekalo and Dániel Czicza 2021 Grammaticalization of verdienen into an auxiliary marker of deontic modality: An item-driven usage-based approachModality and Diachronic Construction Grammar, Hilpert, Martin, Bert Cappelle and Ilse Depraetere (eds.), pp. 81–122 | Chapter
This paper investigates synchronic variation in the lexical and grammatical environments of the German lexical verb verdienen ‘earn’, ‘deserve’. In its lexical uses, verdienen co-occurs with an object noun phrase whose head is either concrete (e.g. Geld ‘money’) or, more commonly, abstract (e.g.… read more
Diewald, Gabriele 2020 Paradigms lost – paradigms regained: Paradigms as hyper-constructionsNodes and Networks in Diachronic Construction Grammar, Sommerer, Lotte and Elena Smirnova (eds.), pp. 277–315 | Chapter
Based on Diewald (2009, 2015a, 2017), it is claimed that the notion of paradigm needs to be introduced into constructional accounts, as otherwise the essence of grammaticalization cannot be properly captured in construction grammar. It is suggested to define grammatical paradigms as a new node… read more
Diewald, Gabriele and Katja Politt 2020 Grammatical categories as paradigms in Construction GrammarThe Wealth and Breadth of Construction-Based Research, Colleman, Timothy, Frank Brisard, Astrid De Wit, Renata Enghels, Nikos Koutsoukos, Tanja Mortelmans and María Sol Sansiñena (eds.), pp. 42–51 | Article
This squib discusses the question whether Construction Grammar can account for the assumption of universal grammatical categories (Bybee, Perkins, and Pagliuca 1994) that are prone to language change, e.g. tense. Most publications in Construction Grammar tackle individual constructions, such as… read more
Cross-linguistic diachronic studies have focused on the parallel or divergent development of cognate or functionally equivalent items. This paper traces the diachronic convergent development of two unrelated items by means of a case study, the development of the German verb scheinen ‘shine, emit… read more
Kresić, Marijana, Mia Batinić Angster and Gabriele Diewald 2017 Chapter 8. A format for the description of German modal particles and their functional equivalents in Croatian and EnglishPragmatic Markers, Discourse Markers and Modal Particles: New perspectives, Fedriani, Chiara and Andrea Sansó (eds.), pp. 229–254 | Chapter
This paper presents a format for a cross-linguistic, corpus-based description of the formal features and the function of modal particles (hereafter: abbreviated as MPs) and their equivalents in German, Croatian and English. We define the word category of MPs for the Croatian language and propose… read more
Diewald, Gabriele 2015 Modal particles in different communicative typesOn the Interaction of Constructions with Register and Genre, Fischer, Kerstin and Kiki Nikiforidou (eds.), pp. 218–257 | Article
The distribution and frequency of individual heterosemes of a hyperlemma in basic communicative types, which are distinguished according to their primary expression of dialogicity (i.e. their factual communicative immediacy/distance), is shown to be dependent on the interplay of i) the heteroseme’s… read more
Diewald, Gabriele and Ilse Wischer 2013 Markers of Futurity in Old High German and Old English: A Comparative Corpus-Based StudyComparative Studies in Early Germanic Languages: With a focus on verbal categories, Diewald, Gabriele, Leena Kahlas-Tarkka and Ilse Wischer (eds.), pp. 195–216 | Article
This paper is a comparative corpus-based study of constructions that had the potential of marking future events in Old High German (OHG) and Old English (OE), i.e. modal constructions and those with be/become-verbs. Given the fact that both languages stem from a common source and probably had… read more

Diewald, Gabriele and Elena Smirnova 2012 “Paradigmatic integration”: The fourth stage in an expanded grammaticalization scenarioGrammaticalization and Language Change: New reflections, Davidse, Kristin, Tine Breban, Lieselotte Brems and Tanja Mortelmans (eds.), pp. 111–134 | Article
In this paper, we propose a ‘constructionist’ scenario of grammaticalization that links successive diachronic stages of a grammaticalization process with particular construction types. Relying on earlier work, especially on the model of relevant context types in grammaticalization proposed in… read more
Diewald, Gabriele 2010 On some problem areas in grammaticalization studiesGrammaticalization: Current views and issues, Stathi, Katerina, Elke Gehweiler and Ekkehard König (eds.), pp. 17–50 | Article
In the past, three central problems were discussed in grammaticalization studies. First, the discrimination and isolation of distinctive features of the process of grammaticalization, second, the question of distinct formal expression, i.e. what counts as an explicitly expressed grammatical… read more

Abstract. The scmanlic relations and oppositions between the German modals and their various uses are treated here as instantiations of a common semantic template, which is described as a complex and condensed relational structure between a modal source, path, and goal. The different readings of a… read more
