Project P1

The Role of German Particles in Questions

P-1 investigates how discourse particles (DiPs) in questions modify or reshape the illocutionary force of the utterance, turning a simple information-seeking question like Wo wohnt er? “Where does he live?” into a non-canonical question (e.g. rhetorical question with schon, can‚Äôt‚Äìfind‚Äì the‚Äì value question with nur).
