The Semantics and Pragmatics of Side Issues

Hendrickx, S. Lalitha Devi, A. Mitkov eds. Anaphora and Reference Resolution. Heidelberg: Springer. Berlin: Springer. In: K. Don't have an account? I argue that this follows from independently justified assumptions: a Discourse particles are expressive elements and therefore their meanings cannot be in the scope of other meaning components. These assumptions, together with a more specific constraint on addressee-oriented expressives, explain the separation of DPRT meanings from focus-background structure. Possible counterevidence comes from stressed uses of some particles in which they have an effect similar to verum focus.

But the particle variants involved in these cases have a descriptive meaning component which is not subject to the scope restrictions holding for expressive meanings and therefore can be put into focus. Author: Joachim Jacobs. Add to Cart.
