Der Band vereinigt Beiträge, die sich der morpho-semantischen Struktur des Deutschen aus funktionaler Sicht, d.h. der Motiviertheit der Interaktion von semantischen und formalen Aspekten bei der grammatischen Strukturbildung, widmen. Im Zentrum steht dabei vor allem die Rolle der morpho-semantischen Kategorien Genus und Numerus bei der Entwicklung und Veränderung des Deklinationssystems, also seiner Deklinations- und Distinktionsklassen. Überprüft wird ihr Potential als Motivierungsinstanzen grammatischer und pragmatischer Kongruenzsysteme. Die Untersuchungen verweisen auf die Relevanz morpho-semantischer Kategorien für eine dynamische, von Variation gekennzeichnete grammatische Strukturbildung des Deutschen, verbinden ihre empirische Fundierung mit Fakten und Erkenntnissen aus Sprachwandel und Spracherwerb, tragen mit ihren Fragestellungen zur morphologischen und Sprachveränderung berücksichtigenden Theoriebildung bei und richten den Fokus neben den linguistischen auch auf didaktische Aspekte des Gegenstands.
