Aux traces d'une dégrammaticalisation : le médiatif en pomaque (Grèce)

Abstract : The analysis of a corpus of tales in Pomak (Greece), reveals the use of a grammaticalized mediativity form by old speakers and the use of the perfect paradigm (mediativity strategy) by younger speakers. This loss goes through a phase of variation for the intermediate generation: loss of auxiliary is maintained in cases of verb repetition (intensive/durative value); for inchoatives and modals + da + Vindicative; for verbs coordinated; and for the introductory formula of tales. We can make the hypothesis that those syntactic contexts were the ones that gave rise to the use of the verbs without auxiliary to express mediativity.
