    Description

     The network has two main objectives:

    i. To discover characteristic respective pathways of diachronic change for grammatical morphemes and pragmatic particles in European languages.

    ii. To investigate whether there are characteristic scenarios of language contact involved in semantic change in European languages.

    Specifically, we intend to investigate how meanings that are coded in language structure arise from language use in actual communication.
