Abstract
This article explores “the pathways of incipient grammaticalization” of a pair of change-of-state semi-copulas tourner/virer ‘become’ (< ‘turn’), within a Diachronic construction grammar - framework. Crucially, two mechanisms of SC-constructionalization play an important role in the process of copularization : (1) the interaction between oblique micro-constructions of an already bleached usage of the verb and their corresponding semi-copular micro-construction and (2) the lexical attraction exerted by a synonymic verb that attracts new verbs into the semi-copular construction (cf. analogization).
