(In press). ”  Grammaticalization within a theory of morphocentricity Jurgen Klausenburger University of Washington . Introduction In a paper read at the Milwaukee Morphology Meeting in 1986, Joseph and Janda (1988: 208) propose . . a morphocentric theory, one in which morphology occupies a central place in the grammars of particular languages and hence in the underlying architecture of universal grammar.

One has to add, of course, that throughout Romance the grammaticalization of the Latin demonstrative pronoun to a definite article occurred.  The French subject pronoun Over the past century, if not longer, Romance linguists have argued over the status of the subject pronoun in Modern French, as illustrated under Figure 11: Grammaticalization within a theory of morphocentricity Latin French ego canto tu cantas ille, illa cantat nos cantamus vos cantatis illi, illas cantant > > > > > > je chante tu chantes il, elle chante nous chantons vous chantez il(s), elles chantent Figure 11.

Rather, we get the opposite: (i) keep on V-ing is longer than keep V-ing, (ii) keep on involves more syntax than keep, (iii) with a keep on pattern next to the keep pattern, we get an increase of paradigmatic vari- More thoughts on degrammaticalization ability, and (iv) the meaning of keep on is more lexical than that of keep. I conclude that reinforcement is a subtype of degrammaticalization. And since it is not recognized as such in either Newmeyer (1998) or Janda (2001), I argue that this is a new finding.
