Abstract:

Subjectivity in Language and in Discourse deals with the linguistic encoding
and discursive construction of subjectivity across languages and registers.
The aim of this book is to complement the highly specialized, parallel and
often separate research strands on the phenomenon of subjectivity with a
volume that gives a forum to diverse theoretical vantage points and
methodological approaches, presenting research results in one place which
otherwise would most likely be found in substantially different publications
and would have to be collected from many different sources. Taken together,
the chapters in this volume reflect the rich diversity in contemporary
research on the phenomenon of subjectivity. They cover numerous languages,
colloquial, academic and professional registers, spoken and written discourse,
diverse communities of practice, speaker and interaction types, native and
non-native language use, and Lingua Franca communication.

The studies investigate both already well explored languages and registers
(e.g. American English, academic writing, conversation) and with respect to
subjectivity, less studied languages (Greek, Italian, Persian, French,
Russian, Swedish, Danish, German, Australian English) as well as many
different communicative settings and contexts, ranging from conference talk,
promotional business writing, academic advising, disease counselling to
internet posting, translation, and university classroom and research interview
talk. Some contributions focus on individual linguistic devices, such as
pronouns, intensifiers, comment clauses, modal verbs, adjectives and adverbs,
and their capacity of introducing the speaker's subjective perspective in
discourse and interactional sequence; others examine the role of larger
functional categories, such as hedging and metadiscourse, or interactional
sequencing.
