ESSLLI Workshop on Formal Approaches to Discourse Particles and Modal Adverbs
Discourse particles and modal adverbs form a borderline case between semantics and pragmatics and so can be the source of new insights in these areas. The use of particles has been connected with discourse relations and other coherence relations, the relation between semantic content and discourse context, especially the mutual knowledge and the common discourse goals of the discourse participants, with expression of speaker beliefs, desires and intentions and with the control of interpretations that go beyond semantic content, i.e. explicatures and implicatures. And, last but not least, particles and modal adverbs can contribute to expressive and other non-truth-conditional aspects of meaning. The workshop proposes to collect contributions to the formal description and implementation of discourse particles and modal adverbs as well as experimental investigation into the use and interpretations of such words.

Call for Papers:
We welcome contributions that address the question what kind of discourse representations and discourse entities we need to assume given the semantic contribution of discourse particles and modal adverbs.
Authors are invited to submit an anonymous, extended abstract. Submissions should not exceed 2 pages, including references. In addition, we would like to receive a separate ID page with the authors' names, affiliations and email-addresses. Submissions should be in PDF format. Please send your submission electronically to l.hogeweglet.ru.nl. The submissions will be reviewed by the workshop's programme committee.
The workshop is part of ESSLLI and is open to all ESSLLI participants. It will consist of five 90-minute sessions held over five consecutive days in the second week of ESSLLI. There will be 3 slots for paper presentation and discussion per session.
