Konzessive Konstruktionen. Ein Verfahren zur Rekonstruktion von Konzessionen

Sara Rezat
From the journal


This paper is concerned with the concession-relation on epistemic-level, herein after referred to as ‘concession’. It is shown that there is a spectrum of means to encode concessions in German: the forms vary from rather “idiomatic” constructions to less specified constructions, from lexico-grammatical constructions up to hardly encoded forms, which have to be inferred from discourse context. Furthermore, a method is demonstrated to reconstruct hardly encoded forms of concessions.
