Abstract

This is a brief reply to the article by Vliegen in this issue. We argue that, while Vliegen’s suggestion of a link between and is certainly plausible, this need not rule out a scenario in which the emerging use of as a particle has also taken its root in (specific uses of) the matrix clause construction In modern construction-based approaches to language change, it is accepted that newly developing constructions may have sources. In this perspective, the ‘matrix clause hypothesis’ and the ‘paratactic hypothesis’ are not mutually exclusive.
