Abstract

Words that function in the lower part of the clause can be reanalyzed as base generated in the higher part. In this paper, I examine how the manner and degree adverb <i>how</i> also functions as a conjunction and <i>yes/no</i> marker. The latter two uses, though not accepted by all native speakers, go back quite a long time. The paper contributes to the discussion about an inventory of features so important in Minimalism since the mid 1990s by arguing that the grammaticalization of <i>how</i> involves a loss of certain features but an increase in others.
