Van linden, An 2020 Constructional effects of indirect evidential marking in HarakmbutNotes from the field on perspective-indexing constructions: Irregular shifts and perspective persistence, Spronck, Stef, An Van linden, Caroline Gentens and María Sol Sansiñena (eds.), pp. 7–28 | Article
This article focuses on two types of constructional effects of indirect evidential marking in Harakmbut (isolate, Peru). Both types originate in a clash of interpretation: the use of indirect evidential marking indicates a shift of perspective away from the speaker (as if they did not witness the… read more
Based on qualitative and quantitative corpus research, this chapter argues that constructions with chance(s) in Present-day English enrich Talmy’s (1988) greater modal system in various ways. Firstly, in their modal uses they are equivalent to core modal auxiliaries and encode especially dynamic… read more
Gentens, Caroline, María Sol Sansiñena, Stef Spronck and An Van linden 2019 Irregular perspective shifts and perspective persistence, discourse-oriented and theoretical approachesIrregular perspective shifts and perspective persistence: Discourse-oriented and theoretical approaches, Gentens, Caroline, María Sol Sansiñena, Stef Spronck and An Van linden (eds.), pp. 155–169 | Introduction
In this introduction, we set out the central themes of the special issue. It concentrates on imperfect function-form mappings, and discusses several cases in which specific perspectival meanings are not fully predictable on the basis of a perspectivizing grammatical construction alone. We… read more
Van linden, An 2019 Chapter 12. Nominalization in HarakmbutNominalization in Languages of the Americas, Zariquiey, Roberto, Masayoshi Shibatani and David W. Fleck (eds.), pp. 455–490 | Chapter
This paper focusses on verb-based nominalization in Harakmbut (isolate, Peru), which falls into two formal types on the basis of the prefix used. The first type, using the nominalizing prefix wa(ʔ)-, is restricted to participant nominalization and is predominantly used to produce nouns for NP-use.… read more
Gentens, Caroline, Ditte Kimps, Kristin Davidse, Gilles Jacobs, An Van linden and Lieselotte Brems 2016 Mirativity and rhetorical structure: The development and prosody of disjunct and anaphoric adverbials with ‘no’ wonderOutside the Clause: Form and function of extra-clausal constituents, Kaltenböck, Gunther, Evelien Keizer and Arne Lohmann (eds.), pp. 125–156 | Article
This paper studies from a synchronic-diachronic perspective the formal and semantic-discursive properties of adverbial expressions with a negative quantifier + wonder (henceforth ‘no’ wonder). They are used as mirative qualifiers which assess a proposition as ‘not surprising’, typically motivated… read more
Davidse, Kristin, Simon De Wolf and An Van linden 2015 The development of the modal and discourse marker uses of (there/it is/I have) no doubtJournal of Historical Pragmatics 16:1, pp. 25–58 | Article
In this paper, we reconstruct the emergence of the modal and discourse marker uses of adverbial and clausal expressions with no doubt. Their history contrasts in a number of surprising ways with typical grammaticalization hypotheses. Existential expressions with no doubt emerged directly with… read more
This article examines modal expressions with the comparative adverbs better, rather and sooner in American English, and assesses to what extent they have grammaticalized. The corpus data offer evidence that the three comparative modal groups exhibit considerable phonetic reduction in the 1810–2009… read more
Verstraete, Jean-Christophe, Sarah D'Hertefelt and An Van linden 2012 A typology of complement insubordination in DutchStudies in Language 36:1, pp. 123–153 | Article
This paper presents an analysis of complement insubordination in Dutch, i.e. structures that are formally marked as subordinate complement clauses but conventionally used as main clauses. We develop a typology of seven distinct construction types (in three semantic domains), none of which have been… read more
Davidse, Kristin, An Van linden and Jean-Christophe Verstraete 2010 IntroductionFormal Evidence in Grammaticalization Research, Van linden, An, Jean-Christophe Verstraete and Kristin Davidse (eds.), pp. 1–16 | Article
This article develops a functional synchronicLdiachronic description of the clausal complement patterns found with good in extraposition constructions (ECs), and compares these to the patterns found with other deontic-evaluative adjectives, such as appropriate, important and fitting. The adjectives… read more
This paper is a diachronic study of post-adjectival infinitive constructions with adjectives denoting goodness, fitness, or necessity. Traditionally these constructions are analysed as tough-constructions. They can be divided into two semantically and syntactically distinct types, viz.… read more
