Cognition Verbs

Modality, evidentiality and cognition

Publié le jeudi 31 mars 2016 par Céline Guilleux

Résumé

We will explore cognition verbs from a cross-linguistic perspective. The data from a sample of languages will enable us to examine the interaction between language and cognition, the evolution patterns of cognition verbs and the near-synonymity of phrases such as I think, I guess or I suppose. The keynote speaker Jan Nuyts (university of Antwerp) will present historical data that questions the origin of the parenthetical uses of mental state verbs, and allows us to reinvestigate the questions of grammaticalisation and subjectification.
