This chapter formulates the main hypothesis of the book: meaning change in grammaticalization needs to be investigated in terms of an explicit theory of the syntax-semantics interface. Specifically, the semantic representation needs to allow for content words as well as functional words and modes of semantic composition. It is argued that truth conditional semantics is presently the most promising theory for this task.

Keywords:   meaning change, reanalysis, syntax-semantics interface, truth conditional semantics
