Explorations of engagement
The Special Issue explores the category of ‘engagement’ (Evans et al. 2017a, b) by means of descriptive accounts of this category as it can be seen in a small number of minority languages from the Andes, Australia, and Papua New Guinea. Engagement is a recently proposed notional category that targets the potentially diverging (epistemic) perspectives of the speech-act participants (cf. “complex epistemic perspective”; Bergqvist 2015a, 2016; Evans 2005). As such, it concerns the distribution of knowledge and attention between the speech-participants, where the speaker asserts assumptions about the addressee’s knowledge of/attention to a state-of-affairs as either shared with the speaker, or non-shared. The individual contributions discuss issues relating to the diachronic development, ontogeny, function, and use of expressions of engagement.
