Meeting Description: This workshop is organised by Kees Thijs and Corien Bary and is part of a larger (ERC-funded) project on perspective taking in language at the Radboud University in Nijmegen [].

The main issue addressed in the present workshop is the way in which the notorious polyfunctionality of discourse particles - both within and across linguistic categories - can be related to various dimensions of meaning (e.g. proposition, speech act). Central themes are the notions of common ground, context, scope and the nature of various discourse layers. The workshop is mainly of a theoretical nature and aims to address more methodological and fundamental questions, both from more formal and more cognitive semantic perspectives.

Invited speakers are:

Daniel Gutzmann (University of Cologne)
Markus Egg (Humboldt University Berlin)
Elena Karagjosova (Freie Universität Berlin)
Rutger Allan (VU University Amsterdam)

Those who are interested in participating in the workshop - either as speakers or listeners - can contact Kees Thijs ( See also the Call for Papers.
