This chapter deals with the diachronic development of the post-nominal definite article in Icelandic and relates the change inside the nominal structure to other changes in the information structure of the clause. It therefore addresses two crucial aspects related to the nature of functional heads: how functional heads in the nominal expression are related to functional heads in the clause, and how grammaticalization in one domain can influence other domains.

Keywords:   Icelandic, post-nominal definite article, clause, information structure, functional heads, nominal expression, grammaticalization
