Trotzke, Andreas and Liliane Haegeman. 2022. Chapter 11. PP-internal particles in Dutch as evidence for PP-internal discourse structure. Particles in German, English, and Beyond, Gergel, Remus, Ingo Reich and Augustin Speyer (eds.), pp. 297–322
Drawing on evidence from Dutch, this paper presents the new observation that discourse particles can not only appear at the level of CP, but also inside the PP domain. In particular, we demonstrate that Dutch dan can receive a non-temporal interpretation, and in this reading dan can appear as a… read more | Chapter
Trotzke, Andreas and Tom Rankin. 2020. Editorial: Introduction to Pedagogical Linguistics. Pedagogical Linguistics 1:1, pp. 1–7
Linguistics comes in many flavors. Applied, cognitive, descriptive, educational, formal, functional, generative, and many more can be compounded onto linguistics to characterize specific frameworks and approaches. In this brief editorial, we outline the rationale for the notion and the… read more | Editorial
One of the main pedagogical objectives for language learners at high proficiency levels is to use ‘cohesive devices’ when writing a text or conducting a conversation. Usually, curricula stress the importance of clause-internal cohesion (by means such as connectives: and, but, when, because, etc.).… read more | Article
In this note, I ask what (if any) linguistic means above the word level might have already been in place before our full-blown syntactic capacity involving recursive Merge has evolved. I argue that the ‘pre-Merge era’ might have been characterized by paratactic emotive utterances comparable to root… read more | Article
In this paper, we focus on the syntax of question particles in Basque and provide an account that draws new parallels between the syntactic behavior of discourse particles in Basque and some recent findings that have been reported for the German language, perhaps the most studied language of all… read more | Article
Trotzke, Andreas. 2017. Mirative fronting in German: Experimental evidence. The Linguistic Expression of Mirativity, Celle, Agnès and Anastasios Tsangalidis (eds.), pp. 460–488
This paper presents an examination of syntactic constructions that are associated with the mirative interpretation of marking propositional content as being surprising or unexpected to the speaker. I report experimental evidence showing that certain options of marked word order in German are… read more | Article
Bayer, Josef and Andreas Trotzke. 2015. The derivation and interpretation of left peripheral discourse particles. Discourse-oriented Syntax, Bayer, Josef, Roland Hinterhölzl and Andreas Trotzke (eds.), pp. 13–40
German discourse particles are known to appear in clause-medial position and to resist displacement to the left or to the right. Nevertheless, there seems to be an exception: discourse particles in interrogatives can be moved to the left as a consequence of forming a constituent with a wh-phrase.… read more | Article
