Review article
The present study examines the fate of the neoclassical combining form pseudo- in eight European languages, belonging to Germanic (Danish, Dutch, English, German and Swedish) and Romance (French, Italian, Spanish). In order to gain a better understanding of the synchronic morphological behaviour… read more | Article
Norde, Muriel and Caroline Morris 2018 Chapter 3. Derivation without category change: A network-based analysis of diminutive prefixoids in DutchCategory Change from a Constructional Perspective, Van Goethem, Kristel, Muriel Norde, Evie Coussé and Gudrun Vanderbauwhede (eds.), pp. 47–90
Dutch derivational morphology is rich in intensifying prefixoids, i.e. morphemes that occur as independent lexemes but have an intensifying meaning when bound to adjectives or adverbs. A specific variant of these are diminutive prefixoid constructions such as bloedjeserieus (blood-dim-serious)… read more | Chapter

Norde, Muriel and Graeme Trousdale 2016 Exaptation from the perspective of construction morphologyExaptation and Language Change, Norde, Muriel and Freek Van de Velde (eds.), pp. 163–195
In this paper, we explore how the process of exaptation can be modelled within a constructional framework of morphology. Assuming that constructions (of varying levels of schematicity and complexity) are organized in constructional networks, we consider issues related to ‘obsolescence’ and… read more | Article

Norde, Muriel and Kristel Van Goethem 2014 Bleaching, productivity and debonding of prefixoids: A corpus-based analysis of ‘giant’ in German and SwedishMorphology and its interfaces: Syntax, semantics and the lexicon, Amiot, Dany, Delphine Tribout, Natalia Grabar, Cédric Patin and Fayssal Tayalati (eds.), pp. 256–274
In this paper, we present a contrastive survey of a morpheme originally meaning ‘giant’ in German and Swedish. In both languages, this morpheme has developed into a prefixoid with simile or intensifying meaning. More recently, these prefixoids have been shown to occur as free morphemes as well, and… read more | Article
Norde, Muriel 2013 Tracing the origins of the Swedish group genitiveThe Genitive, Carlier, Anne and Jean-Christophe Verstraete (eds.), pp. 299–332
The term “group genitive” refers to all constructions in Swedish where the invariable genitive morpheme is attached to the right edge of complex NPs, instead of to the head noun. This paper focuses on one particular type of group genitive, in which the genitive marker is enclitically attached to a… read more | Article
Norde, Muriel 2012 Lehmann’s parameters revisitedGrammaticalization and Language Change: New reflections, Davidse, Kristin, Tine Breban, Lieselotte Brems and Tanja Mortelmans (eds.), pp. 73–110
Grammaticalization, and especially degrammaticalization, are polysemous terms. The term ‘grammaticalization’ has been used to refer to changes from a lexical item to a grammatical item (‘primary grammaticalization’), and from a grammatical item to a ‘more grammatical’ item (‘secondary… read more | Article

Norde, Muriel 2010 Degrammaticalization: Three common controversiesGrammaticalization: Current views and issues, Stathi, Katerina, Elke Gehweiler and Ekkehard König (eds.), pp. 123–150
The term ‘degrammaticalization’, originally coined by Lehmann in 1982 for a supposedly non-existent phenomenon, soon came to be applied to a number of often entirely different changes. Since such ‘counterexamples’ pose a potential challenge to the unidirectionality of grammaticalization, they have… read more | Article

Norde, Muriel 2001 The loss of lexical case in SwedishGrammatical Relations in Change, Faarlund, Jan Terje (ed.), pp. 241–272
One of the most fundamental changes in the history of the Germanic languages was the loss of inflectional case marking. This paper will discuss the mechanisms involved in the decline of inflectional case systems with special reference to the loss of lexical case in Swedish. It will be seen that the… read more | Article
