title = "From synchrony to diachrony : Stance constructions in computer-mediated and spoken discourse",
abstract = "This talk is divided into two parts. In the first part of the talk I will present a study that looks at the use of epistemic and evidential stance verbs on an online bulletin board. With the help of quantitative corpus techniques, I expect to find support to the hypothesis that epistemic and evidential stance verbs are important markers of social status in such communities. In the second part of the talk I will turn to spoken discourse and propose an upcoming study that would deal with the grammaticalization of epistemic and evidential complement-taking predicates and their functional characteristics in spoken British English.",
