In search of the force of dependent verb second

Wiklund, Anna-Lena LU (2010) In Nordic Journal of Linguistics 33(1). p.81-91
Abstract
This short communication is a brief extension of recent work on verb second in Scandinavian declarative clauses and is a contribution to research on the relation between V2 and illocutionary force. It is argued that Swedish data present a problem for the hypothesis that a bi-conditional relation holds between the illocutionary force of an assertion and the verb second word order. The relevant force, to the extent that we can identify it, appears to be available also in the absence of V2 word order. It is tentatively suggested that V2 encodes evidentiality.
