Articles

This article argues that the widespread view that the diachronic processes of grammaticalization and of subjectification go hand in hand, and that highly subjectivized meanings typically correlate with highly grammaticalized forms, should be revised. The point is made on the basis of the case of… read more | Article

Nuyts, Jan 2017 Evidentiality reconsideredEvidentiality Revisited: Cognitive grammar, functional and discourse-pragmatic perspectives, Marín-Arrese, Juana I., Gerda Haßler and Marta Carretero (eds.), pp. 57–83
This article reconsiders the semantic status of the traditional concept of evidentiality, typically featuring ‘experientiality’ as the coding of directness of information, and ‘inferentiality’ and ‘hearsay’ as the marking of two different types of indirect information sources, as well as of two… read more | Article
Nuyts, Jan and Pieter Byloo 2015 Competing modals: Beyond (inter)subjectificationDiachronica 32:1, pp. 34–68
This paper presents the results of a corpus-based diachronic investigation into the semantic evolution of the Dutch modals kunnen “can”, mogen “may” and moeten “must”, revealing an interaction between processes of (inter)subjectification and of semantic competition (‘no synonymy’). Mogen and kunnen… read more | Article

This paper presents a diachronic corpus investigation into the Dutch mental state predicate denken ‘think’. It investigates both the semantic development (specifically, the evolution in the non-attitudinal vs. the attitudinal meanings of the verb) and the grammatical development (the evolution in… read more | Article
Nuyts, Jan 2014 Notions of (inter)subjectivityIntersubjectivity and Intersubjectification in Grammar and Discourse: Theoretical and descriptive advances, Brems, Lieselotte, Lobke Ghesquière and Freek Van de Velde (eds.), pp. 53–76
This paper compares a few notions of ‘subjectivity’ (vs. ‘objectivity’ or ‘intersubjectivity’) circulating in the current functional and cognitive linguistic literature. It aims to demonstrate that, in spite of some points of contact in the analysis of certain linguistic issues, e.g. in the sphere… read more | Article

This conceptual paper reflects on the role of ‘subjectivity’ in the analysis of the semantic domain of modality. It offers a critical review of the traditional notions of subjectivity vs. objectivity (including Lyons’ 1977), and it elaborates further on an alternative notion, labeled… read more | Article

Nuyts, Jan 2012 Language is an instrument for thought. Really?Culture – Language – Cognition, Dascal, Marcelo † (ed.), pp. 317–333
This discussion article addresses the assumption formulated in Dan Everett’s new book Language: The Cultural Tool that language is not only an instrument for communication, but also an instrument for thought. It argues that the latter assumption is far from obvious, and that, in any case, one… read more | Article
Nuyts, Jan 2011 Pattern versus process concepts of grammar and mind: A cognitive-functional perspectiveCognitive Linguistics: Convergence and Expansion, Brdar, Mario, Stefan Th. Gries and Milena Žic Fuchs (eds.), pp. 47–66
This chapter focuses on one element dividing cognitive linguistics and more traditional functional linguistic approaches to grammar, viz. the contrast between the construction oriented approach predominating in the former and the rule or process oriented approach prevailing in the latter. It offers… read more | Article
This paper aims to show how a clear perspective on the cognitive systems and processes involved in language production can help to solve a number of persistent problems in the analysis of TAM and related categories, and particularly of the semantic categories of deontic modality, volition,… read more | Article
Byloo, Pieter, Richard Kastein and Jan Nuyts 2007 On certainly and zekerStructural-Functional Studies in English Grammar: In honour of Lachlan Mackenzie, Hannay, Mike and Gerard J. Steen (eds.), pp. 35–57
This contribution investigates the meanings and uses of the English and Dutch adverbs certainly and zeker. In the range of adverbial expressions of epistemic modality, the ‘strong’ adverbs (expressing ‘certainty’) clearly tend to be used in a much more ‘flexible’ way than the (relatively) weaker… read more | Article

Article
Starting from an investigation of the information structure (specifically, the possibilities for focalization) of some major epistemic expression forms — modal adverbs and adjectives, mental state predicates, and modal auxiliaries — in Dutch and German (also with reference to English), this paper… read more | Article

This paper is a contribution to the recent debate between a number of anthropologists and philosophers concerning the role of intentions in a theory of verbal behavior.
