Module assignments


Some of the most frequently used minor linguistic forms (sprachliche Kleinformen) have been neglected in intuition-based linguistic research for a long time. In this seminar, we will focus on discourse particles, modal particles, scalar particles, response particles, interjections, intensifiers as well as (some other) adverbs and prepositions. We will adopt a corpus-based stance and describe their grammar and meaning in authentic text and discourse. Subscribing to the view that „language looks rather different when you look at a lot of it at once“, we will compare descriptions in ‚traditional‘ grammars with conditions of use as emanating from authentic evidence.
