The development of nominalizers in East Asian and Tibeto-Burman languages
This paper presents evidence of recurring patterns as well as of language-specific variations in the development of nominalizers across several East Asian and Tibeto-Burman languages. Special attention is pa to the different grammaticalization pathways of nominalizer morphemes and to the links between different types of nominalization phenomena occurring in the languages of this area. The article also offers an in-depth discussion of a number of controversial issues in the domain of nominalization, among others the following: the interaction of nominalization, tense–aspect and evidentiality–mood interpretation, the relationship between nominalization and copula usage, and the analysis of so-called forgotten or residual nominalizers.
