MetadataShow full item record
We know that all language undergoes grammatical change through time. The motivations for such evolution can be either language-internal or language-external. In this paper we are going to look at the second, because external motivation has been the mechanism for the development of a potencial conditional marker in Sierra Popoluca. Examples will be drawn from spontaneous conversation. This material was recorded and transcribed by me. In the transcription I am using a practical alphabet.
