This chapter summarizes the volume. It provides a bird's-eye view on the diachronic changes and the accounts developed in the volume. The different strands of research, empirical observations, internal and external motivations for them, and the theoretical accounts are drawn together in a single overview. Furthermore, the chapter offers an outlook beyond the scope of the volume and sketches further lines of research.
