Hernaiz Gomez, Rodrigo The grammaticalization of manner expressions into complementizers: Insights from Semitic languages. In: The grammaticalization of manner expressions into complementizers, 26 Aug - 1 Sep 2020, Bucharest (online).

Abstract

Complementization strategies in ancient and modern Semitic languages include the use of complementizers formed from a common element k- (Modern Hebrew , Akkadian kīma, Ugaritic k(y), Ge’ez kama). These conjunctions, which typically cover a wider semantic range beyond complementation, are generally assumed to derive ultimately from a common Semitic comparative particle (Deutscher 2000).
