FOR 2111 TP 1 Die Funktion deutscher Modalpartikeln in Fragen


This project investigates how discourse particles in German (e.g., 'denn', 'bloss', 'schon') modify the illocutionary act carried out by a question. Combining formal tools and psycho/neurolinguistic research, it strives to derive the syntactic, semantic and pragmatic constraints governing this modification and to explore the cognitive mechanisms that underlie its processing.
