Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics

Call Deadline: 01-May-2014

Meeting Description:

In this workshop we want to investigate what modal particles are all about. We invite participants who are passionate about understanding what makes modal particles tick and who would like to contribute to an in-depth discussion in which we try to pin down the true nature of, and mechanisms involved in, modal particles and their interpretations. Confirmed contributions include work on modal particles in German, Danish and French, and contributions on other languages are welcome as well.

Call for Papers:

To attend, please submit an abstract of 1000-1500 words that briefly addresses the following points:

- What is your position on the function(s) of modal particles?
- What is the role of the syntactic position of the modal particles in the language(s) you are working on?
- What is the relationship between modal particles and other particles (sentence adverbs, discourse particles etc.) in the language(s) you are working on?

Please send your abstract to Maria Alm: mhalmsdu.dk.
