FB Sprachwissenschaft

In this workshop, we want to bring together researchers working from different angles on how natural language expresses evidence. We are especially interested in (but not limited to) submissions that straddle the divide between linguistics and philosophy and address the following issues:

  1. Evidentiality across syntactic categories
  2. Speech acts conveyed by evidentials
  3. Evidentiality in a broader context of attitude ascriptions and subjective expressions
  4. Types of reasoning and knowledge involved in statements with different evidentials
  5. Formal tools for modelling evidence
