Untersuchungen zur Theorie der Grammatikalisierung am Beispiel des Westmitteldeutschen
Hitherto, research on grammaticalization has been largely language-typological and universalist in its leanings and as such has been consistently gaining ground within the framework of German studies.

The inclusion of diachronic analyses places the present-day grammaticalization processes in a broader context.
