Demonstrative Pronouns on the Grammaticalization Path The paper examines the connections between the functions of some demonstrative pronouns, pronominal forms or constructions. The development of the different uses of these linguistic units is accounted for by a theory of grammaticalization applied to the demonstratives. The second half of the paper illustrates the grammaticalization of the demonstratives by placing the various uses of the Hungarian form azért along a so-called grammaticalization path, presenting them either as clear stages of the grammaticalization process or as transitional phenomena between these stages.
