Pr. Bernd Heine (Köln University), "The grammar of interactives: The challenge of discourse"

Most work on grammatical analysis has focused on the structure of clauses and sentences organized in a propositional format. Work on discourse processing and the organization of texts suggests, however, that there are many linguistic phenomena that are elusive to a description in terms of ‘sentence grammar’. A number of frameworks, commonly known as ‘dual process models’ (e.g., Evans and Stanovich, 2013; Heine, 2019), have been proposed to account for such phenomena and their psychological and neurolinguistic correlates (e.g., Marini et al., 2005; Haselow, 2019).

Based on this line of research, the present paper argues that there is crosslinguistically a pool of linguistic expressions that appear to be anchored immediately in the situation of discourse rather than in the syntactic or semantic structure of sentences. These expressions, referred to as ‘interactives’, include interjections, ideophones, discourse markers, social formulae, as well as a number of types of linguistic forms. The goal of the paper is to define these expressions as a grammatical category distinct from other linguistic categories.
