They show a more complete and distributed communicational effort, deploying all the surveyed components in the creation of focalisation, and join both salience and relevance. Local, John. The antecedent is a member of a class which can only be identified by the information given by the modification. It has also been proposed that there may be a continuum of subordination even within one clause type (Tao and McCarthy 2001), and that certain subordinate clause types may not actually be best described as such, especially adverbials and appositive relative clauses (Depraetere 1996, Thompson 2002). However, these characterising functions are performed by a verb, unlike adjectives. Inscribed in a continuity, the gestures encoding a same referent are more schematic, while those carrying new information are often more precise and clearer (Kita et al. “Projection in Interaction and Projection in Grammar.” Text 25–1 (2005): 7–36. This movement takes place at an inferior pitch level to L’s initial syllable: these segments are in the same vocal paragraph. In this sense, abstract organisational gestures are traditionally associated to the discourse background, Similarly, held gestures are used to modify meaning in real time (McNeill 2005). Other possible complements include prepositional phrases, such as for Jim in the clause They waited for Jim; predicative expressions, such as red in The ball is red; subordinate clauses, which may be introduced by a subordinating conjunction such as if, when, because, that, for example the that-clause in I suggest that you wait for her; and non-finite clauses, such as eating jelly in the sentence I like eating jelly. Berkeley, CA: eLanguage, 1984. Norris, Sigrid. Cristofaro, Sonia. It has also been found that many newly grammaticizing constructions occur preferentially in main clauses (Giv6n 1979). showing less pitch movement) than their co-text (Hirschberg and Grosz 1992). In (7) below, the sequence could be glossed as “it’s only one shop for the whole thing now, and that is quite bad”. < 05). Initial temporal relative clauses are “grammatical signals” indicating the opening of a new discourse unit, which they frame. In (3), the restrictive relative clause increases the relevance of “the reasons”, creating a subcategory for this referent. , and confirms this unit as the climax. “Adverbial Clauses.” In Language Typology and Syntactic Description: Complex Constructions. 13The literature generally agrees on the fact that appositive relative clauses show several characteristics that are typically associated with non-subordinate clauses (Krifka 2007)6. Table 7 features the verbal parameters taken into account and their distribution in restrictive relative clauses. The table follows the reading model of Table 1 and Table 4, but concerns restrictive relative clauses. A Comprehensive Grammar of the English Language. A relative clause is a subordinate clause that modiﬁes a noun or noun phrase in an associated main clause. Amsterdam and Philadelphia, PA: John Benjamins, 1992. located elsewhere in the syntactic structure. In the latter type, the relative pronoun only intervenes as an inter-propositional relator. Lazard (1994: 81) describes adverbial clauses as “required as part of the communicative target”, but not from the point of view of grammatical agency. 1999; Huddleston and Pullum 2002: 1048). 3Instead of comparing subordinate clauses to non-subordinate clauses in discourse, the study aims at identifying differences between three syntactic types of subordinate constructions in terms of informational weight, through their multimodal expression. Quirk et al. We would like to thank Anglophonia’s reviewers for their valuable comments and suggestions on a previous version of this paper. “Mutual Gaze and Recognition: Revisiting Kendon’s ‘Gaze Direction in Two-person Conversation’”. Labov, William and Josua Waletzky. Any substantial backchannel produced by the co-speaker between the subordinate construction and R (or overlapping with the beginning of R) was noted, as they reflect the co-speaker’s treatment and selection of particular pieces of information within the stream. However, one of their most distinct tendencies concerns their capacity to have extendable interpretative and textual scopes; a majority of them predicate information that remains relevant for the interpretation of two or more tone-units: 86In sequence (13), Sc opens a discourse frame as well as a distinct substructure, developing a narrative-like description of air turbulence. Rhianna resumes her main argumentation line in R with a much more categorical expression: while bent in assent during, she holds herself upright in R and accompanies the next tone-units with a continuous negative head shake. Restrictive relative clauses also increase their production of organisational gestures specifically concerned with focalisation, as the increase in the number of organisational hand gestures (from 27.5% of organisational hand gestures in L to 36.3% in SC) is caused by hand beat gestures only. > .05) and the other syntactic types (adverbials: < .002). Lelandais, Manon and Gaëlle Ferré. Traditional grammar does not detail in great length the syntactic link between adverbial clauses and the clause they modify (Gosselin 1990; Auer 2005). However, the configurations between events and discourse-related material have been shown to depend on pragmatic and cognitive considerations such as the starting points speakers choose to convey their message. Embedded clauses can be categorized according to their syntactic function in terms of predicate-argument structures. This substantial proportion, however, is shared with adverbial clauses. Lyttle, Eldon G. A Grammar of Subordinate Structures in English. While some substantial work has focused on their syntactic (, Couper-Kuhlen 1986), the development of analytical tools and schemes (, . . The table follows the reading model of Table 4 (adverbial clauses). “A Praat Plugin for Momel and INTSINT with Improved Algorithms for Modelling and Coding Intonation.”, Holler, Anke. 108Appositive relative clauses (ARCs) gather three focalisation cues. “Givenness, contrastiveness, definiteness, subjects, topics, and point of view.” In C. N. Li (ed. Most complement clauses are noun clauses like (2) and (3), but if you want to call (1) an adjective clause because it modifies a noun, go ahead. “Four hours? Subject 2. 59At a prosodic level, (4) subordinate clauses should be uttered in a low or mid key (Wichmann 2000), as opposed to main clauses expressing foreground, which would be uttered in a higher key. These constructions seek the establishment of a consensus between speaker and co-speaker, bearing on interactional felicity rather than propositional meaning. Gosselin, Laurent. They present a relatively high transitivity rate, with 25% of occurrences displaying a transitive verb. While subordinate constructions are seen as embedded elements (Jackendoff 1977), Jespersen (1927), Fabb (1990), and Peterson (1999) consider some relative constructions as exterior to the syntactic structure of the main clause. Berkeley, CA: eLanguage, 1990. They connect portions of speech without necessarily involving their predicate in a syntactic relation of subordination (Muller 2006). Blühdorn, Hardarik. Subordinators or subordinating conjunctions usually introduce the subordinate clause in a sentence (see subordination and … A change in gaze direction towards an object can also work as a deictic gesture, given the directional vector it provides (Knoeferle and Kreysa 2012). Kleiber, Georges. 39Each participant was filmed in a static, wide-angled shot, facing or three-quarters turned towards their interlocutor. We focus on eye gaze, head and eyebrow movement, as well as on hand gestures. Retrieved 16 September 2014 from http://revel.unice.fr/cycnos/index.html?id=1693. The corpus was segmented into tone-units, according to the British school of intonation. Clauses comprise an essential nucleus (which contains the predicate, corresponding to an event, process or state, and its core complements), and an optional periphery (corresponding to the spatiotemporal frame such as localisation or environment; Van Valin and LaPolla 1997). 2a. significant changes in the F0 curve either regarding the speaker’s pitch range (Top, Bottom) or regarding the neighbouring tones or sequences of tones (Upstep, Downstep, Same, Low, High). Wyld, Henry. Loock, Rudy. Lascarides and Stone 2009), cognitive linguistics (e.g. Verbal features taken into account to determine foregrounding (grey zones) or backgrounding in Appositive Relative Clauses.9, cataphora in previous tone-unit + anaphora in following tone-unit. Completing the identification of the item “test”. , contrasting with a preceding gesture sequence. The total column gives the number of features present in sequences (L+Sc+R) that contain a Restrictive Relative Clause. pronouns, or simply leave the relativized argument unpronouncedin the subordinate clause . Thompson, Sandra A. “‘Are You a Good Which or a Bad Which?’ The Relative Pronoun as a Plain Connective.” In A. Celle and R. Huart (eds. Morristown, NJ: Association for Computational Linguistics, 1992. (1985: 1257) and Biber et al. 56In order to establish reliability of the gesture function classification, a second coder judged 20% of the data that had been classified by the original coder. Table 6 shows the distribution of the gestural cues for foreground in adverbial clauses. “The syntax of Appositive Relativization.”, Dohen, Marion and Hélène Lœvenbruck. significant changes in the F0 curve either regarding the speaker’s pitch range (Top, Bottom) or regarding the neighbouring tones or sequences of tones (Upstep, Downstep, Same, Low, High). Sc’s established gestural frame, while still valid for R’s interpretation, is not held or elaborated upon. Several studies do not subscribe to the traditional opposition between restrictive relative and appositive clauses. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2009. The superior pole of subordination within the gradation between nucleus and periphery is parataxis (Lehmann 1988) where the verbal categories of aspect, tense, and mood are retained. Van den Broeck (1973) replaces the binary distinction with an eight-point scale, going from total “restriction” to total “non-restriction”. 106This analysis presented a study of three types of subordinate clauses (appositive relative clauses, adverbial clauses and restrictive relative clauses) in a corpus of spoken English. According to Reinhart (1984), only main clauses can belong to the foreground since subordinate clauses are considered to be presupposed. With a head nod and a lower flip of her right hand (b), Rhianna acts both as the character in the situation she has described in L (Rhianna assents to her mother’s exhortation) and as a speaker-utterer: she acknowledges the legitimacy of her mother’s advice and marks this concession with a hand flip. However, Sc does not elaborate upon her mother’s advice: this segment is a comment going back on L’s new information (“get my license”). Current reference time, which has to be updated to move the discourse forward, can only be updated by main-clause events (. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2004. In (4), “the little bits” open an informational file, completed with “stick out” as a defining feature introduced with “that”. The finite verb is most central to what constitutes a clause. Let us see the list of these four structural elements and proceed to discuss each one of them in details with illustrative examples. Table 8. 70Restrictive relative clauses are the most modulated among both the different types and their surroundings (20% of speakers showing a significant contrast in pitch movement between L and Sc; p < .05 for these speakers). self-contact gestures used for comfort, were included although they cannot be considered as communicative gestures, because they give information on the organisation of turns, being more frequent when the participant is listening. New York and London, UK: Routledge, 2004. Dancygier, Barbara and Eve Sweetser. 93Adverbial clauses feature a solid number of cues; however, these signals are not evenly distributed in the different modalities: their prosody plays a very weak role in the creation of focus. In the traditional division of clause complexes into two uneven and complementary subgroups, a main clause and a subordinate, modifiers are viewed as “optional” constituents functioning at a phrasal or clausal level: some elements of the message are deemed semantically useful without standing as constitutive elements. Other studies (, Muller 2006; Krifka 2007) mark out the limits of this distinction and state that the difference lies in the use of co-reference. Borsley, Robert D. “More on the Difference between English Restrictive and Non-restrictive Relative Clauses.” Journal of Linguistics 28–1 (1992): 139–48. In example (2), Tim does not directly state that he has passed his driving licence, but uses it as part of the common ground between speakers to establish a contrast with the following utterance. Prominence is mainly expressed visually, as they increase the saliency of the gestures coding some propositional content, but also feature signals related to the structuring of discourse. This suggests an even distribution of information, and a great variety in their presentational modes. Final adverbial clauses play a more restricted, local role, explicitly unfolding the spatio-temporal scene in which the action described in the previous clause is achieved (Muller 2006). Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2002. This sequence is then characterised with two successive modal positions which are not equal in intensity: the stance taken in R is stronger than that in Sc. 82Appositive relative clauses do not bring a substantial propositional input, as shown by their low transitivity and their capacity to insert modality in the discourse. A Basic Introduction. Two other notions express related but distinct phenomena in this paper: “focalisation” reflects the point of view of language production, and points at a communicative effort from the speaker, which results in a specific syntactic, prosodic, and/or gestural configuration. In (1) below, the adverbial clause specifies the circumstances in which the predicative relation in “I tried driving once in her car” is realised, locating in time the situation expressed by the verb and its complements. While some heads inherently require reference to a dependent, which may therefore be considered the head’s argument, other dependents are not inherently presupposed by their head and are considered modifiers. 24 relationship. 62From a macro-syntactic viewpoint, no syntactic or semantic cue is mainly used to index foreground information in appositive relative clauses. Each dialogue had a single MPEG-4 file, juxtaposing the images of both cameras which filmed each participant. Swerts and Krahmer’s studies (2005; 2008) are also multimodal, investigating audiovisual prosody. Prosodic features tested in Appositive Relative Clauses. past participle: They arrived dressed in street clothes. Non-finite subordinate clauses = clauses with no finite verb. Biber, Douglas, Stig Johansson, Geoffrey Leech, Susan Conrad and Edward Finegan. Bergen, Norway: Bergen University Press, 2009. 10 The table follows the reading model of Table 1. “Relatives et types de qualification.”, Muller, Claude. Kipp, Michael, Michael Neff and Irene Albrecht. New York: Academic Press, 1979. The table follows the reading model of Table 1. +R) that contain an Appositive Relative Clause. Repeated gestures throughout an interaction create coherence in terms of discourse (Lascarides and Stone 2009). The exchange space they create can mainly be seen with their gestures, reflecting pragmatic preoccupations above the representational level. The last column gives the percentage of appositive relative clauses showing each feature out of the total 40. 112While subordinate constructions are not significantly emphasised through their syntactic realisation or lexical coding, the increase in the referential value of the gestural components suggests a shift towards a visual manipulation of representational features, and a global, sequential valorisation of information, through held gestures and repetitions throughout tone-units. The corpus was first transcribed in Praat, using a standard orthographic transcription of tone-units, in which subordinate constructions were localised and coded on a separate track as, . Thompson (2002) adds that an initial adverbial clause raises a “problem” regarding the expectancies fulfilled by previous discourse segments, and that the following utterances bring solutions. 2007). Predicators 3. The simultaneous realisation of two uneven hand gestures in height and size denotes a semantic subordination through the use of form and space. The Manu-facture of Meaning. Sequence (14) features a high final rising contour in Sc, represented in Figure 3: Figure 3: Extract in Praat of sequence (14), in which Sc features a high rising contour. Spontaneous Spoken Language: Syntax and Discourse. However, in discourse, communicative priorities can be reversed using only the co-reference function of an antecedent. “Annotation by Category: ELAN and ISO DCR.” Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Language Resources and Evaluation 2008. Alex then looks at the air hostesses). Figure 1: Intonation curve of example (10) in Praat, showing a rising-falling contour in Sc.18. Likewise, while emphasis is coded with a rising-falling contour on the nuclear syllable (Selting 1987), flat or falling-rising contours are used to encode background information (Ward and Hirschberg 1984). 22Although subordinate constructions are broadly defined as dependent, the literature shows little consensus in defining clear scopes and boundaries for these structures. “Facial Expression and Prosodic Prominence: Effects of Modality and Facial Area.” Journal of Phonetics 36–2 (2008): 219–238. 28While very little work has been conducted on subordinate constructions from a multimodal perspective, a large body of research has detailed prosodic subordination (e.g. A downstepped tone compared to a preceding high tone corresponds to the general neutral relationship between two prosodic groups. They are the only syntactic type to feature more eyebrow movement in. According to these functions, subordinate clauses fall in the following categories: subject clauses, object clauses, adverbial clauses and attributive clauses. This antecedent is redefined in, with the creation of a property attributed to “the cells”. “Beyond Foreground and Background.” In R. S. Tomlin (ed. The highest distribution of emphatic (rise-fall) contours in appositive relative clauses is shown in example (10) represented in Figure 1 below. In conversational English, adverbial clauses tend to follow the clause they modify (Miller and Weinert 1998) as seen in example (1) featuring an anaphoric adverbial connection. Adverbial clauses also feature the highest proportion of head beats (45.9% of head beats in. This collaborative corpus gathers video recordings realised in soundproof studios between 2000 and 2012. Its referential elements are stabilised in that their scope is defined. Types of clause. emphasises both new cognitive and textual units: several clauses are grouped in their necessity to be interpreted through its criterion, which must stay activated in the co-speaker’s memory. These constructions seek the establishment of a consensus between speaker and co-speaker, bearing on interactional felicity rather than propositional meaning. “Descriptive Categories for the Additive Analysis of Intonation in Conversation.”, Sloetjes, Han and Peter Wittenburg. In (7) below, the sequence could be glossed as “it’s only one shop for the whole thing now, and that is quite bad”. “Movement Phases in Signs and Co-speech Gestures, and their Transcription by Human Coders.”, Kleiber, Georges. Finally, Ferré (2014) proposes a multimodal approach to markedness in discourse. Larreya (1979) also identifies five types of relative structures drawing on Culioli’s framework of identification. Subordinate constructions facilitate the co-speaker’s processing load, acting on the interpreting constraints and triggering certain inferential operations as they link accessible information to new elements, (Chafe 1984), through an invocation of context (Levinson 2003). This Sc is not a presupposition: the co-speaker can question it independently from the rest (e.g. The agreement between coders was 81.9%. “I didn’t know you had tried it as well”). The second coder is also a specialist of the field. 57Based on the theoretical background defined by the literature, a specific list of syntactic, discursive, rhythmical, intonational, and visual cues is taken into account to survey different types of background information. The table shows, however, that no significant result concerning their verbal characteristics can differentiate adverbial clauses from the other syntactic types. Amsterdam and Philadelphia, PA: John Benjamins, 1992. Initial adverbial clauses are used by speakers to avoid asserting some information considered as already known (i.e. Intonation in Text and Discourse. In M. Seyfeddinipur and M. Gullberg (eds.). Chafe, Wallace. They provide a large number of subject complements as in (8): which was like # what like four hours away from here #. “Discourse Coherence and Gesture Interpretation.” Gesture 9–2 (2009): 147–180. a main clause and a subordinate, modifiers are viewed as “optional” constituents functioning at a phrasal or clausal level: some elements of the message are deemed semantically useful without standing as constitutive elements. A subordinate clause gives additional information to the main clause. These specific features are listed below and are expected to be correlated with subordinate clauses, as they would not be expected in main clauses, as main clauses are assumed to convey foreground information in discourse. Predictable grammatical correlates of grounding are still assumed, but are considered relative by a number of studies (e.g. Des changements dans la configuration modale au fil de la séquence discursive contenant une subordonnée indiquent quant à eux que les modalités verbale, vocale, et gestuelle constituent des ressources dynamiques et flexibles pour exprimer de l’information d’arrière-plan ou de premier plan, en fonction de leur type syntaxique. J. Berkeley, CA: Linguistic Society of America, 1984. Muller, Claude. syntactic function complement presence of items complementizer zu finite clauses + +-non-finite clauses +-+ - + + The data are well known, but to my knowledge the question has never been addressed just why a lexical complementizer must not appear in the left periphery of a non-finite complement clause. Table 5 displays the prosodic features of adverbial clauses. Toulouse: Presses Universitaires du Mirail, 2003. Berlin, Germany. shows more movement than R, with a 68-Hz F0 variation. (9) Held gestures and asymmetrical configurations are expected, with small organisational hand movements produced in the speaker’s periphery or low coordinates (Streeck 2009), while these features are not associated with main clauses, and larger hand movements are linked with focalisation. . Completing the identification of the item “test”, Sc delays the verbal sequential focus, set in R with a presentative structure and the discourse marker “actually”. The head beat in example (11) shows that adverbial clauses simultaneously participate to the textual structuring of discourse with their co-occurring gestures. The emphatic contours and eyebrow rises on these forms are evidence of their interactional orientation, as they are centred on the co-participant and engage a negotiation on the way some successive informational items are presented. Tim leaves the ongoing factual description to deliver a modal orientation about the quality of a referent he has just activated (“this Irish tune”). At the level of discourse, their predisposition to cognitive centring with cataphoric referential elements in L and anaphoric elements in R is shown in (17), where Zoe describes in a narrative how depressed she was to come back for a second year abroad: 97While “someone” in L points forward, projecting further precision on a referent whose relevance in the sequence is not yet justified, R’s pronoun “it” in R refers to the whole situation described in the narrative. focalisation cues at several levels as well as contributions which are more decisive to the construction of referential meaning and to the realisation of sequential discourse purposes than their co-text. ’s final rising contour indexes more talk to come, and centres the co-speaker’s attention on the forthcoming segment. The paper discusses subordinate clauses in English, specifically, finite and non-finite nominal clauses and finite and non-finite adnominal relative clauses. This vocal mark points out the important textual role of the subordinate segment to the co-speaker. ), The Clause in English. The proportion of hand beats rises from 18.5% of the total number of hand gestures produced in L to 32% of the total number of hand gestures produced in SC. While L makes a decent reason to come back in itself (“I’m coming back for someone”), the information explaining best Zoe’s unhappiness is the ascribed feature to L’s referent: that “someone” is “not even there”. “Cadrer ou centrer son discours? 102In short, the vocal features of restrictive relative clauses participate to the foreground. Figure 7 positions them on a continuum from background to foreground, including intermediate communicational strategies. Likewise, representing referents through hand gestures is a cumulative process, often achieved through a series of several gesture units, . Givón, Talmy. Table 9 presents the gestural characteristics of restrictive relative clauses. Table 6. “Adverbial Clauses: An Enunciative Approach.” In A. Celle and S. Gresset (eds. The beat configuration is held until the end of Sc, after which Tom finds a rest position (d). “About the Relationship between Eyebrow Movements and F0 Variations.” Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Spoken Language (ICSLP 96). Subordinate constructions are relevant to examine language production and comprehension in real time, and present implications for discourse modelling. Adverbial clauses also feature the highest proportion of head beats (45.9% of head beats in Sc) in their host sequence (L: p > .05; R: F(39,39) = 1.92, p < .05). They merely provide a further semantic characterisation of the referent (or state of affairs) expressed by the head, or supplement the head with additional information. London, UK: Routledge, 2009. 29Prosodic subordination is essentially achieved through intonation (Bolinger 1984). Oxford: Clarendon, 1998. (1995). . Gesturecraft. The corpus used for this study, ENVID (Lelandais and Ferré 2016), is a collection of dialogues in British English. Adverbial clauses feature a solid number of cues; however, these signals are not evenly distributed in the different modalities: their prosody plays a very weak role in the creation of focus. “A Revision of the Foreground-background Distinction.” Talk delivered to the Linguistic Society of America Winter Meeting. “A Praat Plugin for Momel and INTSINT with Improved Algorithms for Modelling and Coding Intonation.” Proceedings of the XVIth International Conference of Phonetic Sciences, 2007. Each gesture phrase was considered to start at the onset of the gesture and to end at the return to rest position if there was one. 88While sharing a single prosodic contour with L, Sc’s final syllable is higher than the initial one (284 Hz vs. 219 Hz) and does not match R’s beginning, which is downstepped (Intsint “D” value). Reinhart, Tanya. He still eats “black pudding”, whose composition he already knows and describes as “disgusting”. 16 The table follows the reading model of Table 7 (restrictive relative clauses). A clause is a group of words that includes a subject and a verb and forms a simple sentence or part of non-simple sentence. Emonds, Joseph E. “Appositive Relatives Have no Properties.” Linguistic Inquiry 10 (1979): 211–43. She then produces a large iconic gesture (b) in. 90The increase in representational gestures is shown in Figure 4, that illustrates example (15), in which L and Sc provide a short abstract to Rhianna’s narrative: i tried [(a) driving once HEAD BEAT] in her car, when we were on a # [(b) little road HEAD BEAT in the countryside] #, [(c) and hem (swallows) she said HEAD BEAT turn left #]. for these speakers). Langacker, Ronald W. “Complex sentences.” In. A change in gaze direction towards an object can also work as a deictic gesture, given the directional vector it provides (Knoeferle and Kreysa 2012). The korrelat can be obligatory, optional or not used at all. This is significantly more than appositive relative clauses (, < .05) and restrictive relative clauses (. “Subordination and coordination in syntax, semantics and discourse.” In C. Fabricius-Hansen and W. Ramm (eds. It refers to the cognitive mechanism deriving from the attentional state, in which one element is perceived by the co-speaker as standing out among others. “Annoter du texte tu te demandes si c’est syntaxique tu vois.”. constructs a landmark for what follows, embedding R. To sum up, while the verbal features of adverbial clauses suggest a two-fold role both in referential elaboration and textual elaboration, their prosody signals background information, with a single focalisation cue. “Foregrounding in English Relative Clauses.”, De Vries, Mark. Potts (2005) also describes the content of appositive relative clauses as non-asserted, as it cannot be directly questioned.
