I also show that only operators appearing without a lexical XP can be grammaticalised, which follows from the nature of the formal features associated with the various operator elements. Though the main focus is on Hungarian historical data, the framework can be applied to other languages too, such as German and Italian, since the changes stem from general principles of economy.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2019-09-16T07:49:18Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Bacskai-Atkari, Julia</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bacskai-Atkari, Julia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2019-09-16T07:49:18Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
