Keizer, Evelien. 2023. Chapter 10. Enation and agnation in multi-level models: The case for Functional Discourse Grammar. Reconnecting Form and Meaning: In honour of Kristin Davidse, Gentens, Caroline, Lobke Ghesquière, William B. McGregor and An Van linden (eds.), pp. 267–298
Gleason’s (1965) distinction between enation (same structure, different lexemes) and agnation (different structure, same lexemes) has proved to be a crucial one for theoretical linguistics, and over the last decades functional and cognitive linguists have made important contributions to the… read more | Chapter
Introduction
Although most studies on the X-is construction (thing-is, fact-is, point-is, etc.) acknowledge that premodification is allowed, very little attention has been paid to this property of the construction. Focusing on instances with the head nouns fact and point, this paper seeks to find out which… read more | Chapter

Chapter
In the extensive literature on parenthetical (non-propositional, disjunctive) adverbs, it is often assumed that, on the basis of their semantic, syntactic and prosodic properties, a binary distinction can be made between integrated (non-parenthetical) and non-integrated (parenthetical) adverbs.… read more | Chapter
Keizer, Evelien. 2018. Interpersonal adverbs in FDG: The case of frankly. Recent Developments in Functional Discourse Grammar, Keizer, Evelien and Hella Olbertz (eds.), pp. 47–88
The aim of this chapter is to present an FDG analysis of interpersonal adverbs like frankly, fortunately and briefly. Although the literature on these adverbs (also referred to as parenthetical, disjunctive, or comment adverbs) is extensive, and their discourse-pragmatic functions and semantic… read more | Chapter

This paper deals with a frequently used construction in English and Dutch which can be broadly described as the (DET) (adj) fact is (that) construction. Using authentic data, it starts by presenting a detailed discussion of the differences and similarities between the English and the Dutch… read more | Article

The aim of this paper is to provide a general overview of derivational morphology in Functional Discourse Grammar (FDG) as presented in Hengeveld and Mackenzie (2008). The paper begins with a brief description of the model with special reference to those properties which are relevant in the… read more | Article
This paper discusses a recurring problem in the development and application of models of grammar: That of deciding which linguistically relevant contextual information forms part of (i.e. enters) the grammar, and which contextual information interacts with the grammar without being part of it.

Keizer, Evelien. 2013. The X is (is) construction: An FDG account. Casebook in Functional Discourse Grammar, Mackenzie, J. Lachlan and Hella Olbertz (eds.), pp. 213–248
The aim of this chapter is to propose a Functional Discourse Grammar analysis of constructions of the form (the) {thing/point/fact etc.} is (is) (that) that reflects both the semi-fixed nature of these constructions and their specific discourse-pragmatic functions. First, it is argued that the… read more | Article
Review
Adpositions have always been problematic in terms of analysis and representation: should they be regarded as lexical elements, with an argument structure, or as semantically empty grammatical elements, i.e. as operators or functions? Or could it be that some adpositions are lexical and others… read more | Article
