Abstract:

This volume presents original comparative and contrastive research intovarious aspects of information structure (topic, focus, contrastivity,givenness, anaphoricity) as well as into forms and structures whoserealisation depends on information-structural factors (clefts,dislocations, reflexives, null subjects, prosodic features, interrogatives)in a number of different languages (Catalan, English, French, Georgian,German, Hebrew, Hungarian). Each contribution emphasises differences orcommonalities between the languages under investigation with respect to therealisation of information structural categories or with respect to theinformation structural implications of a given form or structure. Thespecific comparative-contrastive perspective of the volume makes asubstantial contribution towards a better understanding of languagespecific and universal aspects of information structure. It raisessignificant questions and provides solutions for the formal representationand the functional properties of information structural categories.
