LIN 216 – Pragmatik II
Maribel Romero, Dr. phil., Professorin
This MA/LA seminar investigates the pragmatic properties of several constructions involving
focal stress, including question-answer congruence in discourse and association with focus.
Central to the seminar will be questions about in-situ vs. movement approaches to focus, the
role of the Focus Phrase, direct vs. indirect association with focus, the phonology/pragmatics
interface of focus, and implicatures (exhaustivity) and other effects (intervention) due to
focus. Furthermore, the course will study the pragmatic properties of a related construction:
contrastive topic. Finally, other relevant issues at the pragmatics/semantics interface will be
presented (invited presentations).
Attention: This is not the course on which the written exam of Fall 2011 for English Lehramt
will be based on. Candidates planning to write the exam on pragmatics should attend Pragmatics II (216)
Seminar: Donnerstag 10-12 (G307)
