Chapter 5. Processing additivity in Spanish
incluso vs. además
This paper offers an experimental analysis of how additive discourse relations are processed in Spanish. The processing data were obtained from an eye-tracking reading experiment on utterances in which the focus operator incluso ‘even’ and the additive connective además ‘furthermore’ were either absent or present. Incluso acts fundamentally on the level of the information structure, whereas además is generally found in argumentative relations. Results show that, despite some differences during semantic and syntactic integration, the presence of a discourse marker affects principally high-level processing. These results seem to underpin theoretical studies that claim for a mainly procedural meaning of discourse markers.
