Subtitle: Language Sciences Special Issue: The Discourse of Redundancy

Main Text:

1. Editorial board and publication information
Page IFC

2. Introduction
Pages 239-242
Elda Weizman, Anita Fetzer

3. Redundancy, repetition, and intensity in discourse
Pages 243-254
Carla Bazzanella

Research highlights
► An overview of redundancy across disciplines is provided at the beginning. ►
In discourse, redundancy can have different linguistic forms, and perform
various functions. ► Textual, contextual, interactional, social, and
psychological parameters should be considered. ► Some aspects of redundancy,
related to repetition and intensity are discussed and exemplified. ► Redundancy
as a piece of the complex machinery of language as an interacting system.

4. “I think this is I mean perhaps this is too erm too tough a view of the world
but I often think …”. Redundancy as a contextualization device
Pages 255-267
Anita Fetzer

5. Redundancy and markers of belief in the discourse of political hearings
Pages 268-279
Lawrence N. Berlin

Research highlights
► Forms of non-facilitative redundancy (including prolixity and logorrhea) can
be coded hierarchically using the Cooperative Principle and the degree to which
its maxims are flouted. ► In political hearings or interviews, use of
non-facilitative redundancy in responses functions as a pragmatic avoidance
strategy. ► In political discourse, markers of belief often co-occur with
different forms of redundancy and may serve as indicators of politicos’ attempts
to be evasive.

6. Edited dialogues: redundancy replaced with relevance?
Pages 280-294
Světla Čmejrková

Research highlights
► Relevance or redundancy can be assessed against genre expectations. ► In genre
of autobiographic storytelling maxims of CP have to be modified. ► Relevance and
redundancy are assessed differently in oral and written texts.

7. Conveying indirect reservations through discursive redundancy
Pages 295-304
Elda Weizman

Research highlights
► Distinguish conventional/non-conventional redundancy. ► Distinguish
redundant/non redundant reservations’ and irony patterns. ► Redundancy is
culture dependent. ► Preference for high informativeness in Journalistic Hebrew
as compared to Journalistic French. ► Languages differ in location on quantity

8. Quantity, truthfulness and ironic effect
Pages 305-315
Zohar Livnat

Research highlights
► The question of quantity connects intriguingly to untruthfulness. ► ‘Quantity’
might include quantity of verbiage, punctuation, emotion and intonation. ► Both
parts of the Maxim of Quantity are relevant for ironic interpretation.

9. Redundancy, irony and humor
Pages 316-329
Galia Hirsch

10. The co-operative principle and computer-mediated communication: the maxim of
