Wouden, Ton van der and Ad Foolen. 2021. Chapter 2. Dutch pragmatic markers in the left periphery. Pragmatic Markers and Peripheries, Van Olmen, Daniël and Jolanta Šinkūnienė (eds.), pp. 49–74
This chapter explores the left periphery of Dutch utterances. Four positions hosting pragmatic markers (PMs) are distinguished: the first sentence position (P1), a position following P1 and two positions respectively preceding and following a left dislocated constituent. We hypothesize that there… read more | Chapter

Foolen, Ad. 2019. Chapter 6. The value of left and right. Emotion in Discourse, Mackenzie, J. Lachlan and Laura Alba-Juez (eds.), pp. 139–158
This chapter focuses on the emotive value (‘axiology’) of words for left and right in different languages. As a general picture, an asymmetry emerges, with a positive value for right and a negative one for left. The chapter further explores whether this asymmetry is reflected in other domains like… read more | Chapter

Hoop, Helen de, Ad Foolen, Gijs Mulder and Vera van Mulken. 2018. Chapter 3. I think and I believe: Evidential expressions in Dutch. Evidence for Evidentiality, Foolen, Ad, Helen de Hoop and Gijs Mulder (eds.), pp. 77–97
This chapter focuses on the evidential use of Dutch denken ‘think’ and geloven ‘believe’ with a first person pronoun. On the basis of Twitter data we conclude that some constructions containing these verbs show features of grammaticalization and that the evidentiality at stake can be labelled as… read more | Chapter
Foolen, Ad. 2017. Chapter 7. The hand in figurative thought and language. Studies in Figurative Thought and Language, Athanasiadou, Angeliki (ed.), pp. 179–198

Foolen, Ad. 2015. Word valence and its effects. Emotion in Language: Theory – research – application, Lüdtke, Ulrike M. (ed.), pp. 241–256
Cognitive science underwent an ‘emotional turn’ in recent years. Besides the rational part of the brain, the ‘other half of the human mind’ (see Parisi 2011) is now taken into consideration as well. Linguistics, with its strong orientation and links to cognitive science, cannot neglect this… read more | Article
Coppen, Peter-Arno and Ad Foolen. 2012. Dutch quotative van: Past and present. Quotatives: Cross-linguistic and cross-disciplinary perspectives, Buchstaller, Isabelle and Ingrid van Alphen (eds.), pp. 259–280
The quotative use of the Dutch preposition van ‘of’ can be considered as the Dutch counterpart of English like, German so and similar items in other languages, the use of which has increased significantly in many languages of the world in the last four decades. Stylistically, quotative van occurs… read more | Article
Foolen, Ad. 2012. The relevance of emotion for language and linguistics. Moving Ourselves, Moving Others: Motion and emotion in intersubjectivity, consciousness and language, Foolen, Ad, Ulrike M. Lüdtke, Timothy P. Racine and Jordan Zlatev (eds.), pp. 347–368
The relevance of emotion for language and linguistics is considered from three perspectives: (a) the conceptualization of emotions, (b) the expression of emotions and (c) the grounding of language. As to the conceptualization perspective, research on the emotional lexicon is discussed. Not only… read more | Article
Foolen, Ad and Helen de Hoop. 2009. Conflicting constraints on the interpretation of modal auxiliaries. Cross-linguistic Semantics of Tense, Aspect, and Modality, Hogeweg, Lotte, Helen de Hoop and Andrej L. Malchukov (eds.), pp. 303–316
The Dutch modal auxiliaries kunnen ‘can’ and moeten ‘must’ can be interpreted in different ways: ‘participant-internal, ‘participant-external’, and epistemic. For each of the verbs, we assume a basic, default interpretation: ‘participant-internal’ for kunnen, ‘participant-external’ for moeten. In… read more | Article
