Although paranormal experiences have been broadly investigated, medium-sitter interactions have been studied much less. In this article, five excerpts from an Italian “public mediumship demonstration” are presented with the main aim to answer the following research questions: (1) what are the… read more | Article

The communication of the uncertainty of a scientific finding largely determines whether that information will be translated to practice. Unfortunately, however, our ability to study these phenomena is restrained since existing uncertainty corpora are limited in their number of full text articles… read more | Article

The aim of this paper was to analyze the 109 occurrences of Italian come se “as if” in a homogenous written corpus of 780 texts, with the aim to highlight the implied evidential and epistemic aspects, not yet explicitly studied in the pertinent literature.

In this study, we compare three approaches to epistemic stance: Akio Kamio’s Theory of Territories of Information (intended as a bridge between evidentiality and politeness) and his distinction between direct and indirect forms of utterances; John Heritage’s differentiation between epistemic status… read more | Article

Within the framework of KUB Theory (Bongelli and Zuczkowski 2008, Zuczkowski et al. 2011), information communicated verbally can ultimately be reduced to one of three categories: what the speaker knows (Known), what the speaker does not know (Unknown) and what the speaker believes (Believed).… read more | Article

In the present study we analysed the lexical and morphosyntactic markers that communicate Certainty or Uncertainty and their pragmatic functions, in a corpus of contemporary Italian political discourses, both speeches and dialogues broadcast on television. The exemplary analysis of two speeches… read more | Article
Riccioni, Ilaria and Andrzej Zuczkowski 2012 Chapter 18. Polyphony in interior monologuesSpaces of Polyphony, Lorda, Clara Ubaldina and Patrick Zabalbeascoa (eds.), pp. 265–278
Following the definition of ‘interior monologue’ (IM) given by Edouard Dujardin (1931), we analysed a corpus of novels (by Schnitzler, Joyce, Dostoevsky, Pirandello) in which this literary technique is used. We discovered that, although one of the conventional meanings of monologue is ‘discourse… read more | Chapter
