(p.212) 13 Downward reanalysis and the rise of stative HAVE got
Historical Syntax and Linguistic Theory

Heidi Quinn

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents evidence from the diachronic development of stative have (got) which suggests that, like grammaticalization, downward reanalysis may affect individual lexical items and involve a category change. In the case of have, the reanalysis from a functional (Pred) to a lexical head (V) was arguably triggered by analogy.

Keywords:   downward reanalysis, grammaticalization, PredP, analogy, Copy Spell‐Out
