Sample text

As for the generalisation account, it tells us only about analogical extension. It tells us nothing about the cognitive and communicative effect, or how to interpret the perspective in sentences like those in (6). I propose that in addition to analogical extension and generalisation, there has been pragmatic reanalysis4 such that the experiencer of an (abstract) sense of motion has been identified with the speaking subject. To this extent, there has been no bleaching, but a realignment, which involves a strengthening of speaker perspective (see section 3 below).

Let us return to epistemic weil. As we have seen, speakers today prefer epistemic weil with main-clause order to factual weil, even if the latter would be perfectly possible and certainly correct. And this raises the question of the advantage to speakers of nearly always choosing one of two possible variants. 14 The argument of greater simplicity might play a role with more complicated ^/-sentences, but it cannot be decisive. There has to be more to it than this. What are the arguments associated with the profits?

The reason for the ubiquity of subjectiflcation presumably lies in the speaker's attempts to communicate the relevance of what is said to the communicative event, which includes hearers as well as speakers, but which ultimately depends for its occurrence on the speaker. For speakers' communicative purposes to be achieved, forms are constantly recruited from lexical domains expressing concrete, objective meanings, and are construed in terms of the perspective of the speaker, the speech event, and the discourse context (Lehmann 1985, Blakemore 1990).
