Abstract
Description
Languages show tremendous variation in the arrays of valency-changing constructions they offer speakers and the circumstances under which each is used. Discovering the functions of alternatives can be a delicate undertaking, because these are often below the consciousness of speakers, they can depend on larger discourse contexts and speaker intentions, and they can be easily distorted by the bilingual context of elicitation. This workshop will explore the kinds of syntactic, semantic, and discourse functions such alternatives can serve and strategies for uncovering them.
