Abstract:

This volume is a collection of papers dealing with the close connectionbetween discourse and grammar, illustrating the many, sometimes conflicting,facets of that relationship in various European languages. Central to allcontributions is their focus on diverse aspects of clause combination and onthe various parameters, such as information structure, that have a special tie with clausecombination. Most of the papers are centred around subordination as agrammatical structure and its status in a discourse. With a few notableexceptions, subordination has been thought of as part of the discursivebackground. This volume adduces convincing evidence from the field ofdeictic/anaphoric items, information structure and rhetorical structure infavour of a more nuanced approach to the status of subordination in discourse.It also illustrates how rhetorical patterns in discourse give rise, through agrammaticalisation process, to new interclausal dependencies.
