Project: Illocutionary force, information structure and sentence form of the interrogative clause. General theory with an application to French
- project duration
- 01-OCT-04 – 30-SEP-05
- This project aims at developing a coherent theoretical frameword for the description of three essential aspects of interrogative clauses on the basis of a specific hypothesis on their semantic nature. The description itself focuses on French interrogatives, because they possess specific characteristics which pose an important challenge to any theoretical approach.
