Negotiation of discourse moves: right periphery tags

Adriana Osa


In this paper I propose to analyze the Spanish discourse marker "no?" as a form that allows the speaker to postpone commitment to a discourse move. This is achieved via projected sets, which are individualized for each discourse participant. I claim that all the functions observed in the previous literature and the non-propositional distribution of "no?" can be explained this way, without recurring to different underlying factors.
