Meeting Description:

ESSLLI Workshop on Formal Approaches to Discourse Particles and Modal

Discourse particles and modal adverbs form a borderline case between
semantics and pragmatics and so can be the source of new insights in
these areas. The use of particles has been connected with discourse
relations and other coherence relations, the relation between semantic
content and discourse context, especially the mutual knowledge and the
common discourse goals of the discourse participants, with expression of
speaker beliefs, desires and intentions and with the control of
interpretations that go beyond semantic content, i.e. explicatures and
implicatures. And, last but not least, particles and modal adverbs can
contribute to expressive and other non-truth-conditional aspects of
meaning. The workshop proposes to collect contributions to the formal
description and implementation of discourse particles and modal adverbs as
well as experimental investigation into the use and interpretations of such
