Three general studies and seven language-specific studies offer functional approaches to understanding the grammaticalization of tense, aspect, modality, and evidentiality in various languages. Their topics include the interaction of components in a functional discourse grammar account of grammaticalization, modality and aspect marking in Surinamese Javanese: grammaticalization and contact-induced change, the grammaticalization of modality and evidentiality in Tundra Nenets, grammaticalization as morphosyntax and representation: mood from tense markers in the Old Irish and Romance condition, and the grammaticalization of Dutch moeten: modal and post-modal meanings.
