This article presents a diachronic corpus-based study of the distribution of mandative that- and to-clauses complementing deontic adjectival matrices in the extraposition construction, as in It is essential to work upwards from easier workloads (CB). It shows that the to-infinitive encroaches oil the that-clause from Early Middle English onwards and comes to predominate in Late Middle English. It thus adduces evidence for Los's (2005) account of the rise of the to-infinitive as verbal complement: against the generally held view that the to-infinitive replaced the bare infinitive, Los (2005) shows that it spread at the expense of the subjunctive that-clause in Middle English, e.g. after intention verbs and manipulative verbs. After considering various factors such as the distribution of the to-infinitive in the adjectival complementation system, the tense of the matrix of the adjectival constructions and the Anglo-Saxon versus Romance origin of the adjectives, I conclude that the rise of the to-infinitive with adjectival matrices in Middle English has to be explained by analogy between verbal and adjectival mandative constructions. In addition, this study shows that - unlike with the verbal constructions - the to-infinitive with adjectival matrices stabilizes at roughly a 3:1 ratio to the that-clause from Early Modern English onwards. For these later periods, finally, it is proposed that the clausal variation may be motivated by lexical determination, discourse factors such as information structure, and stylistic preferences.

This article approaches common topics in the diachronic literature on modal categories from the perspective of adjectives. It thus expands on what has been found for the better studied category of modal auxiliaries as regards sources of modal meaning and pathways of change. Most importantly, it proposes two new pathways from premodal to (dynamic) modal meaning, one followed by essential and vital, and one followed by crucial and critical. It also shows that in the four cases the development of dynamic meaning depends on the emergence of two semantic properties, viz. relationality and potentiality. Finally, this study makes it clear that the mechanisms driving the various semantic changes are not new, but rather have proved useful in explaining a varied set of developments. For the final semantic extension of the adjectives from dynamic to deontic meaning, for instance, the process of subjectification (Traugott 1989) will be invoked. [less ▲]

This study examines how extraposition constructions with adjectives, such as it is important to honour those who have done honour to us (CB) function in the deontic and directive domain. It is found that in these two domains, which correlate with different sets of adjectives, the adjectival expressions can function on two distinct levels, either relating to the real world (State of Affairs [SoA]-related), or relating to the speaker's argumentative goals (speaker-related). These levels have also been noted for other linguistic categories, such as inter-clausal relations (e.g., Davies 1979; Sweetser 1990; Verstraete 2007). Within the set of speaker-related uses, a further distinction will be proposed between text-building uses and mental focus on a proposition uses. The first type serves to build arguments, or to specify or just the organization of a text. The second type is used to make the hearer focus mentally on a propositional content. It will be argued that this latter type is a partially filled construction in the sense of Goldberg (1995). In this sense, this study proposes a constructionally motivated typology of extraposition constructions in the deontic-directive domain. [less ▲]

This article develops a functional synchronic-diachronic description of the clausal complement patterns found with good in extraposition constructions (ECs), and compares these to the patterns found with other deontic-evaluative adjectives, such as appropriate, important and fitting. The adjectives studied can currently take either mandative complements expressing desired action, or propositional complements describing arguable claims. Good differs from adjectives such as appropriate and important in that it currently favours propositional to-clauses. More specifically, I will argue that it occurs in two types of partially filled constructions in the sense of Goldberg (1995) featuring such complements, viz. the locative pattern and the knowledge/acquisition of knowledge (KAK) pattern. The diachronic data will reveal that good started to prefer propositional to-clauses only recently, amongst others through the emergence of the KAK pattern in Late Modern English and its subsequent rise in frequency. In addition, the present-day occurrence of purely evaluative adjectives like nice and great in the locative and KAK constructions suggests that analogy with this class of adjectives may have played a role as well.

Neurodegeneration is a molecular process that occurs during several brain diseases (Parkinson, Alzheimer, Epilepsies). This process leads to the reorganization of synapses and neurons in the Central Nervous System. The search for early medication to reduce neurodegeneration is a major challenge in Neuroscience. To this aim, VALAPODYN, a European Commission-funded research network, develops functional genomics and proteomics related to the dynamics of molecular interaction networks (MIN). MIN modeling investigates protein-protein interactions and regulation networks. Using a mouse model of induced hippocampal cell loss associated with focal epilepsy, dynamic protein expression analyses were conducted at 10 successive time-points during the first 24h. Protein expression was analysed by mass spectrometry, using a “classical” gel-based method as a means of covering all modulated proteins at each considered time-points. Proteins were extracted from minutes amount of frozen hippocampal samples and subjected on two-dimensional difference in-gel electrophoresis (2D-DIGE). This analysis allows quantification of cyanine-labelled proteins. A total of 252 differentially regulated proteins spots were picked digested and identified using MALDI/TOF-TOF mass spectrometry. Overall the expressions of 127 different proteins were identified as reproducibly modulated over the time-range studied. Several proteins have multiple protein spots resulting from different isoforms. The functional annotation of these proteins shows that, among other mechanisms, most of them are involved in the response to stress, synapse remodelling, neuron development, and intracellular signal transduction.
