Qs: Pragmatics of Questions and Assertions

Editor for this issue: Kevin Burrows <kevinlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 1: Pragmatics of Questions and Assertions

From: Agnes Kang <makanghkucc.hku.hk>
Subject: Pragmatics of Questions and Assertions

Dear all:

We are interested in finding references on semantic/pragmatic approaches to
questions and assertions in English and Chinese. In particular, we are
interested in discussions on the hearer’s involvement with these speech
acts, for example, regarding full questions (with subject verb inversion)
and tag questions, as well as studies that discuss both questions and
assertions. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Kind regards,
M. Agnes Kang
