Abstract:

In Potential Questions at the Semantics-Pragmatics Interface Edgar Onea proposes a novel component for question under discussion based discourse pragmatic theories thereby combining such theories with new ideas from inquisitive semantics. He shows how potential questions account for an entire range of grammatical phenomena. These phenomena include the semantics of indefinite determiners, the meaning contribution of nominal appositives, specificational constructions and non restrictive relative clauses.

Edgar Onea, Dr Phil (1980), University of Göttingen, is a Junior Professor for Theoretical Linguistics at the Courant Research Centre “Text Structures”. He has published a wide range of articles on the semantics-pragmatics interface and formal pragmatics.
