Andrason, Alexander and Bernd Heine 2023 Chapter 9. On the grammaticalization of ideophonesDifferent Slants on Grammaticalization, Hancil, Sylvie and Vittorio Tantucci (eds.), pp. 237–262
Ideophones, like English bang or thud, are interactive expressions used as vivid depictions of sensory imagery of states, events, objects, or qualities (cf. Dingemanse 2011, 2012, 2018; Dingemanse & Akita 2017; Andrason 2020, 2021). They are claimed to represent a universal class of linguistic… read more | Chapter

Heine, Bernd, Gunther Kaltenböck, Tania Kuteva and Haiping Long 2021 Chapter 1. On the rise of discourse markersStudies at the Grammar-Discourse Interface: Discourse markers and discourse-related grammatical phenomena, Haselow, Alexander and Sylvie Hancil (eds.), pp. 23–56
Discourse markers exhibit a range of grammatical properties that set them apart from many other lexical and grammatical forms. A number of hypotheses have been proposed to account for these properties. Most commonly, such accounts have drawn on grammaticalization theory, less commonly also on the… read more | Chapter
Heine, Bernd, Gunther Kaltenböck and Tania Kuteva 2020 On the status of wh-exclamatives in EnglishFunctions of Language 27:2, pp. 207–233
Exclamative expressions like What an enormous crowd came! and How wonderful this journey is! have been described as forming one of the four basic sentence (or clause) types of English. The present paper discusses the main features of this type and analyzes them with reference to the framework of… read more | Article
Heine, Bernd, Tania Kuteva and Haiping Long 2020 Chapter 2. Dual process frameworks on reasoning and linguistic discourse: A comparisonGrammar and Cognition: Dualistic models of language structure and language processing, Haselow, Alexander and Gunther Kaltenböck (eds.), pp. 59–89
The objective of the present paper is to compare two kinds of research traditions that developed in the course of the last decades to understand mental and linguistic processing. One tradition relies on the perspective and methodology commonly used in social psychology, cognitive psychology and… read more | Chapter
Heine, Bernd 2018 Are there two different ways of approaching grammaticalization?New Trends in Grammaticalization and Language Change, Hancil, Sylvie, Tine Breban and José Vicente Lozano (eds.), pp. 23–54
Grammaticalization as a framework of linguistic analysis developed a fairly stable format in the course of the 1980s and 1990s (Lehmann 1982; Heine & Reh 1984; Traugott & Heine 1991a, 1991b; Heine et al. 1991; Hopper & Traugott 1993; Bybee et al. 1994; Haspelmath 1999). Around the turn of the… read more | Chapter
Heine, Bernd 2016 On non-finiteness and canonical imperativesFiniteness and Nominalization, Chamoreau, Claudine and Zarina Estrada-Fernández (eds.), pp. 243–268
Imperatives exhibit cross-linguistically a wide range of structures, which makes it difficult to generalize about them or to propose a structural definition that would apply to all or at least to most of them. This article is concerned with canonical imperatives, that is, information units that… read more | Article
Heine, Bernd 2016 Extra-clausal constituents and language contact: The case of discourse markersOutside the Clause: Form and function of extra-clausal constituents, Kaltenböck, Gunther, Evelien Keizer and Arne Lohmann (eds.), pp. 243–272
Extra-clausal constituents as proposed by Dik (1997: 379–407) are linguistic elements that are typically marked off from the clause proper by breaks or pause-like inflections in their prosodic contour, or occur on their own, they can only be understood in terms of pragmatic rules and principles and… read more | Article
Heine, Bernd, Christa König and Karsten Legere 2016 Reacting to language endangerment: The Akie of north-central TanzaniaEndangered Languages and Languages in Danger: Issues of documentation, policy, and language rights, Filipović, Luna and Martin Pütz (eds.), pp. 313–333
Language endangerment in Africa is of a different kind than it is in many other parts of the world. Globalization and the impact of languages such as English, French, or Portuguese are not a major problem for the maintenance of African languages. Language loss is no less a factor in Africa than it… read more | Article
Heine, Bernd, Gunther Kaltenböck and Tania Kuteva 2016 Chapter 2. On insubordination and cooptationInsubordination, Evans, Nicholas and Honoré Watanabe (eds.), pp. 39–64
The chapter is concerned more generally with what, following Evans (2007), we call insubordinated (or insubordinate) clauses, that is, with the conventionalized main clause use of what, prima facie, appear to be formally subordinate clauses. Insubordinated clauses are, as we argue here, information… read more | Article
Heine, Bernd, Heiko Narrog and Haiping Long 2016 Constructional change vs. grammaticalization: From compounding to derivationStudies in Language 40:1, pp. 137–175
Building on recent findings made in the framework of Construction Grammar, on the one hand, and within the framework on grammaticalization, on the other, the present paper is concerned with the development from lexical compounding to derivation. Compounding is presumably the most common source of… read more | Article
Heine, Bernd 2014 Explaining language structure: On categorial misbehavior in Walman (Papua New Guinea)Grammaticalization – Theory and Data, Hancil, Sylvie and Ekkehard König (eds.), pp. 67–86
Typically, certain grammatical features are associated with one particular lexical category rather than some other category. Nouns can be modified by numerals or adjectives, can take determiners like demonstratives or possessive attributes, can be inflected for number, case, etc. Verbs, by… read more | Article
Heine, Bernd and Motoki Nomachi 2013 Chapter 4. Contact-induced replication: Some diagnosticsShared Grammaticalization: With special focus on the Transeurasian languages, Robbeets, Martine and Hubert Cuyckens (eds.), pp. 67–100
That contact between genetically unrelated languages (or dialects) has taken place is relatively easy to establish when they share, for instance, sufficient lexical or grammatical forms. This is usually much more difficult to demonstrate when the shared elements concern structure and/or meaning,… read more | Chapter
Heine, Bernd, Gunther Kaltenböck and Tania Kuteva 2013 On the origin of GrammarNew Perspectives on the Origins of Language, Lefebvre, Claire, Bernard Comrie and Henri Cohen (eds.), pp. 379–406
The goals of the present chapter are twofold. On the one hand, it aims to show the potential that studies on grammaticalization offer for reconstructing earlier phases in the evolution of language or languages, that is, phases that are not within the scope of the classical methods of historical… read more | Article

Article
Kaltenböck, Gunther, Bernd Heine and Tania Kuteva 2011 On thetical grammarStudies in Language 35:4, pp. 852–897
Most frameworks of linguistic analysis tend to highlight phenomena of language use and/or language knowledge such as sentence and word structure, while backgrounding or ignoring other phenomena that are interpreted as being of more marginal interest for the linguist. The main goal of this paper is… read more | Article
For good reasons, linguists are highly skeptical when it comes to predicting linguistic change. As has been argued in Heine (2003: 598–599), based on observations on some regularities of grammatical change made within the framework of grammaticalization theory, however, it seems possible to propose… read more | Article
The study of the rise of syntactic complexity, in particular of clause subordination and recursive language structures has more recently become the topic of intense discussion. The present paper builds on the reconstruction of grammatical evolution as proposed in Heine and Kuteva (2007) to present… read more | Article

Heine, Bernd and Tania Kuteva 2003 On contact-induced grammaticalizationStudies in Language 27:3, pp. 529–572
Grammaticalization is based on universal strategies of conceptual transfer. Contact-induced language change on the other hand is an areally confined process resulting from specific historical events. What this suggests is that the two constitute quite divergent phenomena and, in fact, in the… read more | Article
