This book offers fresh perspectives on “shared grammaticalization”, a state whereby two or more languages have the source and the target of a grammaticalization process in common. While contact-induced grammaticalization has generated great interest in recent years, far less attention has been paid to other factors that may give rise to shared grammaticalization. This book intends to put this situation right by approaching shared grammaticalization from an integrated perspective, including areal as well as genealogical and universal motivations and by searching for ways to distinguish between these factors. The volume offers a wealth of empirical facts, presented by internationally renowned specialists, on the Transeurasian languages (i.e. Japonic, Koreanic, Tungusic, Mongolic, and Turkic) — the languages in focus —as well as on various other languages. Shared Grammaticalization will appeal to scholars and advanced students concerned with linguistic reconstruction, language contact and linguistic typology, and to anyone interested in grammaticalization theory.

Table of Contents
“The volume stands out because of the vast amount of empirical data gathered and presented, not only from the Transeurasian languages, but from European and Amazonian languages as well. Additionally, many different linguistic areas are represented within the volume: morphology (articles, verbs, personal pronouns, allocutivity markers), lexicology (suffixes and prefixes), semantics (scalar additive operators), phonology (fricatives, voicing) and syntax (insubordination). [...]
The methodology and theoretical aspects brought into light are of great value for those researchers who wish to start or continue their own research in the field of grammaticalization, regardless of the languages or linguistic categories in question.”
