Gemeinsamkeiten und Unterschiede zwischen Grammatikalisierung und Phraseologisierung


The basic intention of the article is to confront the processes of change of language of "Grammaticalisation" and "Phraseologisation" with one another, in order to find out essential common and different points as a result. One essential concern with regard to the methods is bringing together the subject areas in question and analysis of information from the relevant Slavic literature and the literature above all from the Anglo-Saxon area, which, although it concerns itself with phenomena of very many linguistic groups, does not answer (or only insufficiently answers) the actual question about the motivation and the precise sequence of the change of meaning. On the basis of the approach, to start with merely hypothetical, to the definitions of "phraseological (or lexical) meaning" vs. "grammatical meaning", the sequence of certain cognitive processes such as metaphorisation, metonymisation and reanalysis are analysed to start with, some of them being re-determined in their essence. The focal point is formed by figuratively motivated phraseologisms and evidential expressions based on modal verbs, the mode of origin of which still poses great puzzles, not only in Slavic linguistics.
