The following papers were published as chapters in edited volumes. Abstracts and downloadable copies are provided below in reverse chronological order:
‘The grammaticalization of K(case)Ps within Minimalism: formalism vs functionalism, synchrony vs diachrony’, in Bednaříková, Božena and Pavla, Hernandezová (eds), Bohemica Olomucensia,Od slova k modelu jazyka: Sborník z 13. mezinárodního setkání mladých lingvistů. Univerzita Palackého v Olomouci (ISBN: 978-80-244-3960-0), pp. 310-325.
Roberts and Roussou (2003) argue that the cross-linguistic distribution of grammaticalization is due to its “simplification”, and the grammaticalization of case-markers displays it since there is a loss of “Agree” relations. Synchronic “simplicity” explains diachronic trends, and formalism and functionalism are not mutually exclusive.

Writing a book chapter is somewhat different from working papers or technical reports, and I have been fortunate enough to have been invited to contribute a chapter in this (Czech) volume. I know the people at the University of Palacky, and they expressed an interest in my work after discovering that I had worked on linguistic formalism and functionalism. My sincerest thanks to them.
