Abstract

The paper proceeds from a comparison of a grammaticalization and a con­structional account of a class of formulaic adverbial expressions from Estonian. The comparison is argued to reveal that the grammaticalization analysis is informed by a particular synchronic model of grammar, and thus that the study of grammaticalization more generally is dependent on the assumed conception of grammar. The paper then goes on to discuss some implications of basing the study of grammaticalization on a con­structional model of language, and sketches a constructional view of some diachronic aspects of the expressions under study. It will be concluded that the constructional model provides a useful basis for the study of grammaticalization.

Keywords
