Abstract [en]

This article deals with shared grammaticalization of indirectives in Turkic. Indirectivity, a genuine Turkic grammatical category, is expressed by different morphological markers across the Turkic varieties; the paths of grammaticalization are, however, isomorphic. It is argued that intensive contact between the cognates triggers and reinforces the renewal of the markers and thereby the maintenance of the category.
