Abstract:

This work investigates the constraints on the usage of the
Japanese particle mo and its discourse functions. The
author claims that the usage of mo is constrained by the
relation between the proposition within the scope of the
particle (the 'host proposition' hereafter) and the context,
defining 'context' as a set of propositions that the speaker
assumes to be shared by the hearer. The analysis shows that,
for the host proposition F(x) where x is the constituent
marked by mo, the context must include an antecedent
proposition H(y) such that y is not x and that F(x) entails
H(x) such that H(x) is 'contextually relevant' to the
context.
