Subjectivity and Epistemicity. Corpus, Discourse and Literary Approaches to Stance
Lund Studies in English 117
This collection brings together diverse approaches to the phenomena of subjectivity and epistemicity in language. The studies originate from three fundamentally different perspectives: literary studies, corpus linguistics and discourse analysis. Despite the differences in these approaches, the studies are all unified by their text-based methodology and a desire to understand how language can be used to express subjectivity and the subject’s knowledge and beliefs. The volume has been brought together with the express aim of giving scientists and scholars working on these problems access to distinct yet compatible approaches. It constitutes a valuable collection of text-based research for anyone working on stance taking, epistemic predication or the notion of linguistic subjectivity.
