Project C6 addresses the class of expressions which are thought not to contribute to the central proposition of a sentence but rather bear an extrapropositional interpretation. These typically convey the subjective attitude of the speaker, specify the informational basis of the main proposition, or structure the discourse. The project carries out in-depth studies of selected extrapropositional phenomena to gain a better understanding of their grammatical characteristics, focusing on the interaction of their formal and interpretative features.
This project started in July 2013, the beginning of the second phase of the SFB 833 (July 2013–June 2017).
