From synchrony to diachrony : Stance constructions in computer-mediated and spoken discourse

Pöldvere, Nele LU ; Paradis, Carita LU and Glynn, Dylan LU (2014) Journée d’étude du groupe LECSeL, Phonologie - Acquisition et Discours - Constructions
Abstract
This talk is divided into two parts. In the first part of the talk I will present a study that looks at the use of epistemic and evidential stance verbs on an online bulletin board. With the help of quantitative corpus techniques, I expect to find support to the hypothesis that epistemic and evidential stance verbs are important markers of social status in such communities. In the second part of the talk I will turn to spoken discourse and propose an upcoming study that would deal with the grammaticalization of epistemic and evidential complement-taking predicates and their functional characteristics in spoken British English.
