This substantial proportion, however, is shared with adverbial clauses. Lambrecht, Knud. According to these functions, subordinate clauses fall in the following categories: subject clauses, object clauses, adverbial clauses and attributive clauses. 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. Positioned at the centre of the continuum, they provide comprehensive messages, both concerned with referential elaboration and with textual sequential organisation, distributing the propositional content in homogeneous blocks. According to Dancygier and Sweetser (2000), “when” clauses engage the speaker to the reality of the mental space built in the “main” clause, even when this reality has already occurred or has not occurred yet. Subordinate constructions have been described in syntax as dependent structures elaborating on primary elements of discourse. “Givenness, contrastiveness, definiteness, subjects, topics, and point of view.” In C. N. Li (ed. In sum, restrictive relative clauses are characterised with dynamicity, in their macro-syntactic features as in their discourse functions. 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, asymmetry mirrors the discourse structure, as R continues her sequential discursive agenda while. The native video recordings were transformed into MPEG-4 stereo files, with a rate of 25 frames per second. 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. 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. ’s final rising contour indexes more talk to come, and centres the co-speaker’s attention on the forthcoming segment. “Principles of Gestalt Perception in the Temporal Organization of Narrative Texts.” Linguistics 22 (1984): 779–809. Lazard (1994: 81) describes adverbial clauses as “required as part of the communicative target”, but not from the point of view of grammatical agency. “Non-restrictive Relatives and Other Non-syntagmatic Relations in a Lexical-functional Framework.”. In this sense, abstract organisational gestures are traditionally associated to the discourse background (Cassell and McNeill 1990). Five dialogues were selected, making up a total of 2 hours and 10 minutes of interaction. Berkeley, CA: Linguistic Society of America, 1984. This 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. < 05). 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). The important role of co-speech gestures in linguistic production has been shown in pragmatics (, Lascarides and Stone 2009), cognitive linguistics (, Some gesture features have been shown to participate in the maintenance of coherence and cohesion (Halliday and Hasan 1976) in speech (Calbris 2011). Her gaze on this gesture has a deictic value. Péry-Woodley, Marie-Paule. However, these characterising functions are performed by a verb, unlike adjectives. Helm (ed), Essays on the Verbal and Visual arts. 71Restrictive relative clauses feature the highest distribution of representational gestures, with 37.8% of representational gestures co-occurring with restrictive relatives (vs. 28.9% of representational gestures in R). The table shows, however, that no significant result concerning their verbal characteristics can differentiate adverbial clauses from the other syntactic types. We are particularly interested in values which indicate a significant pitch reset (Top, Bottom), or a significant change in pitch key (Upstep —change towards a higher pitch range, Downstep— towards a lower pitch range). Berlin, Germany. , and confirms this unit as the climax. n (1987: 176) contradicts the notion of any fixed grammatical correlate to the foreground/background distinction in discourse. In the case of two consecutive gestures, the first gesture phrase ends at a significant change in shape and/or trajectory. which gives the number of gestures showing each feature per segment) and the last column (which gives the percentage of the gestures in appositive relative clauses out of the total of gestures in the sequence —L+Sc+R). Seattle: University of Washington Press, 1967. . The second coder is also a specialist of the field. Couper-Kuhlen, Elizabeth. 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. < .005). They first feature significantly less held gestures than adverbial clauses (, , meaning that their gestures are less static. Throughout a vocal paragraph, pitch height naturally declines in a progressive manner. 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. . In contrast, only 7.5% of adverbial clauses (F(39,39) = 2.68, p < .005) and 10% of restrictive relative clauses (p > .05) show this type of emphatic contour. Melis, Gérard. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press, 2002. “Phonetic Detail and the Organisation of Talk-in-interaction.”, , Saarbrücken, Germany, 2007. ), The Clause in English. They feature the highest distribution of state verbs, denoting a permanent feature of the grammatical subject. New York: John Wiley, 1982. ), Universals of Human Language: Syntax. Examples will be provided in relation with these results in the Discussion section that follows. 6. The total column gives the number of features present in sequences (L+. The last column gives the percentage of appositive relative clauses showing each feature out of the total 40. In separate tracks, gaze direction was annotated as either towards the co-participant or away, eyebrow movement distinguished between rise and frown, and hand gestures were categorised into iconics, metaphorics, pointings, beats, emblems, butterworths, and adaptators, drawing mainly from McNeill’s typology (2005). A salient structure is thus the result, or outcome, of focalisation as a process. Stevenson 2002). “Gesture and Ground.” Proceedings of the Sixteenth Annual Meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society. “‘Subordination’ in Universal Grammar.” Proceedings of the Tenth Annual Meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society. Nov. 11, 2020. Figure 1: Intonation curve of example (10) in Praat, showing a rising-falling contour in Sc. Figure 7: Continuum from background to foreground in the marking process of subordinate constructions. b. Lytvynova, Maryna and Huy Linh Dao. 62From a macro-syntactic viewpoint, no syntactic or semantic cue is mainly used to index foreground information in appositive relative clauses. The antecedent is a member of a class which can only be identified by the information given by the modification. 73Unlike the encoded process in L, validating < it take us to Limoges >, Sc comprises a state verb denoting a qualitative property of L’s last lexical item. The head beat in example (11) shows that adverbial clauses simultaneously participate to the textual structuring of discourse with their co-occurring gestures. While it is often difficult to distinguish the range of adverbial clauses between the narrow target of the verbal phrase and the larger target of the whole clause, they are detached constructions that create an external entity to the predication by their syntactic position, but internal to the utterance. Below, you’ll find lists of all the different types, including examples from the Trainline Corpus. do not directly represent referents. Retrieved 30 January 2013 from, Bolinger, Dwight. [(a) my mum’s pushing ] me to get my license. ), Connectives as Discourse Landmarks. 6Whether initial or final, localising frames raise the question of their more or less rigid relation to the verb of the clause they are grouped with4. Wallace 1982). “The Intonation of Accessibility.”, Beattie, Geoff W. “Sequential Temporal Patterns of Speech and Gaze in Dialogue.”, Benzitoun, Christophe, Anne Dister, Kim Gerdes, Sylvain Kahane and Renaud Marlet. These three levels of discourse structure are respectively called main structure, substructure, and side structure. Its referential elements are stabilised in that their scope is defined. 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.

Gesture: Visible Action as Utterance. ), Lytvynova, Maryna and Huy Linh Dao. 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. 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. “The Structure of Discourse and ‘Subordination’”. Punctuating subordinate clauses only gets tricky when they begin with relative pronouns such as that, which, who, when, where, and whose.Conveniently, this type of subordinate clause can be referred to as a relative clause.There are two types of relative clauses: restrictive and nonrestrictive. 102In short, the vocal features of restrictive relative clauses participate to the foreground. Sc also features a head beat; Sc is marked as textually equal to its surroundings. 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, the lexical content of appositive relative clauses mainly marks an evaluative stance from the speaker, which does not represent critical information in the referential and/or sequential development of discourse. 18Viewing language as integrating speech and gesture in an organised system enables to investigate the contribution of subordinate constructions on several levels in discourse, overstepping the binary opposition between foreground and background. Norris, Sigrid. They mainly comment upon their co-text as in (9), through a shift in the assertive parameters in which factual descriptions are turned into utterances showing a strong modal stance: 75Tim answers a question from the co-speaker about a music band who performed in a bar the night before. London: Longman, 1985. Restrictive relative clauses also highly and directly contribute to their embedding discourse sequences: the focus in (17) is not on Zoe coming back, but on her reasons for coming back. A second track delimitates their environment: the preceding tone-unit was labelled L (left co-text), the subsequent one labelled R (right co-text). 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. +R) that contain an Appositive Relative Clause. Gesturecraft. Larreya (1979) also identifies five types of relative structures drawing on Culioli’s framework of identification. Information Structure and Sentence Form: Topic, Focus, and the Mental Representations of Discourse Referents. (1985) regard appositive relative clauses as semantically equivalent to coordinate clauses. New York: Cambridge University Press, 1996. In face-to-face interactions, participants use different channels (verbal, vocal, visual) when they speak and one of the aims of Multimodal Discourse Analysis, is to study the contribution of each channel to the information content of messages. . He still eats “black pudding”, whose composition he already knows and describes as “disgusting”. The semantic frame-work I use is SDRT1, although I translate the conditions of an SDRS into a dependency graph. Lazard, Gilbert. 40The corpus was first transcribed in Praat (Boersma and Weenink 2013) using a standard orthographic transcription of tone-units, in which subordinate constructions were localised and coded on a separate track as Sc. In short, the vocal features of restrictive relative clauses participate to the foreground. Several studies do not subscribe to the traditional opposition between restrictive relative and appositive clauses. For instance, they feature the highest distribution (adverbial clauses: F(39,39) = 1.96, p < .02; restrictive relative clauses: F(39,39) = 1.96, p < .02) of state verbs (85%), mainly denoting a permanent (79.4%) feature of the grammatical subject. In (5), the appositive relative clause qualitatively evaluates “black pudding”, which can however be identified independently. Rhianna marks this information with a sweep of her right hand corresponding to the verbal item “pushing” (a). Chafe, Wallace. “Four hours? The total column gives the number of features present in sequences (L+Sc+R) that contain a Restrictive Relative Clause. This construction allows speakers to provide the co-speaker with more complex information about the antecedent than in non-relative structures, without the co-speaker having trouble processing it. Background information can also be uttered with an increased speech rate whereas focalisation can be achieved through a significant decrease in rhythm (Wichmann 2000). Every subordinate clause is introduced by speci c conjunctions, while the subordinate clause has its unique syntactic structure; for example, the particles Hinna and its sisters are followed by the subject in the accusative and not in the nominative case. A Modern English Grammar on Historical Principles. R’s adverbial phrase elaborates on the conceptual whole formed by Sc and its antecedent. “The Structure of Discourse and ‘Subordination’”. Vallduví, Enric and Elisabet Engdahl. The second coder is also a specialist of the field. 4 The interpretational range of initial and final adverbial clauses has been investigated by numerous studies in the discourse literature. 4a. From the perspective of discourse, adverbial clauses have extendable interpretative and textual scopes; 60% of them predicate information that remains relevant for the interpretation of two or more tone-units. Such functions are used in main clause assertions, but rarely appropriate in ... constitutes a primary example of syntactic conservatism in subordinate clauses. Ward, Gregory and Julia Hirschberg. Ambiguous types were resolved with discussion between the two coders and agreement was reached on the main dimension of gesture types. Instead, they connect them by reference. While iconic and other representational gestures are used before Sc, creating foci at the objectal, propositional level, the gestures used in Sc do not directly represent referents. Prosody is therefore in accordance with the discourse features of these syntactic constructions. A subordinate clause gives additional information to the main clause. Gestural features tested in Adverbial Clauses, number of hand gestures with a representational function out of a total of 52 in sequences (L+, number of hand gestures with an organisational function out of a total of 117 in sequences (L+, high hand gestures out of a total of 30 in sequences (L+, low hand gestures out of a total of 77 in sequences (L+, held hand gestures out of a total of 21 in sequences (L+, hand beats out of a total of 20 in sequences (L+, head beats out of a total of 37 in sequences (L+, gaze units away out of a total number of 96 in sequences (L+, eyebrow rises out of a total of 17 in sequences (L+. Two audio files corresponding to each microphone were created in a WAV format, so as to facilitate the analysis of overlapping speech. Amsterdam and Philadelphia, PA: John Benjamins, 1992. Potts, Cristopher. Within a discourse sequence, a distinction is made between discourse units fulfilling the main purpose of the sequence, those contributing to any pre-requisite to the fulfilment of the main purpose (which are thus related to the sequence, and are relevant at a sub-sequential level), and those dealing with intervening, side purposes. 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. 12 The table follows the reading model of Table 1, but concerns adverbial clauses. Other gestural features such as direction and gestural space were also noted by the two coders following Bressem and Ladewig (2011). 60As far as co-verbal gestures are concerned, (7) the selected subordinate constructions are expected to be produced in the same gesture unit as their sequential environment (Enfield 2009), while main clauses are usually produced with distinct accompanying gesture units. As far as co-verbal gestures are concerned, (7) the selected subordinate constructions are expected to be produced in the same gesture unit as their sequential environment (Enfield 2009), while main clauses are usually produced with distinct accompanying gesture units. The selection targeted occurrences without an interruption, surrounded with immediate left and right co-texts other than a single silent pause yielding the speaking turn. Types of non-finite subclauses. functioning as modifiers in our oral corpus of spontaneous interaction (described in the “Corpus and methodology” section of the paper): adverbial clauses, restrictive relative clauses, and appositive relative clauses which are illustrated in examples (1-3) below. In this study, gesture includes co-speech bodily movement that is considered part of an utterance, following Kendon’s (2004) definition.

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 are the only syntactic type to feature more eyebrow movement in. infinitive: I want you to understand this.-ing-participle: I suggested meeting her for a coffee. 9 The first column gives the number of constructions out of 40 that shows each feature in each segment in the sequence. 1999; Huddleston and Pullum 2002: 1048). The subsequent series of tables presents the cues we take into account, along with their distribution in the different syntactic types of subordinate constructions. Like an adverb, it modifies a verb, an adjective-clause or another adverb clause in the sentence. Gestural features tested in Adverbial Clauses14, number of hand gestures with a representational function out of a total of 52 in sequences (L+ Sc +R), number of hand gestures with an organisational function out of a total of 117 in sequences (L+ Sc +R), high hand gestures out of a total of 30 in sequences (L+ Sc +R), low hand gestures out of a total of 77 in sequences (L+ Sc +R), held hand gestures out of a total of 21 in sequences (L+ Sc +R), hand beats out of a total of 20 in sequences (L+ Sc +R), head beats out of a total of 37 in sequences (L+ Sc +R), gaze units away out of a total number of 96 in sequences (L+ Sc +R), eyebrow rises out of a total of 17 in sequences (L+ Sc +R). The semantic nature of their connector distinguishes several types of adverbial clauses, expressing for instance temporal relations with “when” in example (1). Harris (1982) considers adverbial clauses as predicates in which one of the agents is the verbal action in itself. “Understanding Non-restrictive Which-clauses in Spoken English, Which is not an Easy Thing.” Language Sciences 23 (2001): 651–677. “Audiovisual Prosody and Feeling of Knowing.” Journal of Memory and Language 53 (2005): 81–94. New York and London, UK: Routledge, 2004. Also known as a dependent clause. Fundamental Frequency which participates in pitch perception) on the accented syllable of a lexical item conveys new information in the discourse (Baumann and Grice 2006). showing less pitch movement) than their co-text (Hirschberg and Grosz 1992). The main structure corresponds to an appropriate answer to a critical, topic-defining question (e.g. “Modal Density and Modal Configurations: Multimodal Actions.” In C. Jewitt (ed. presuppositions) than their co-text (L: F(39,39) = 1.92, p < .05; R: F(39,39) = 2.23, p < .01). The timing of the video stills is indicated under each image. More specifically, the differentiation between restrictive relative clauses and appositive relatives on syntactic grounds is problematic (Borsley 1992, Arnold & Borsley 2008). Our analysis is selective in choosing which elements to comment upon for reasons of space, and highlights different cues for each of the three clause types. Frequency counts per syntactic type were realised for any discourse-new referential item introduced as discourse-new items that move the discourse forward (Hopper 1979). Clauses can be classified as independent (main clauses) and dependent (subordinate clauses). ). Chafe (1976) first describes adverbial clauses as establishing “a spatial, temporal, or individual framework within which the main predication holds”. They first feature significantly less held gestures than adverbial clauses (F(39,39) = 2.08, p < .02) and restrictive relative clauses (F(39,39) = 1.94, p < .02), meaning that their gestures are less static. “Prosodic Boundaries in Subordinate Syntactic Constructions.” In. We test whether these forms mainly express foreground information or whether they preferentially provide secondary material in discourse. This movement takes place at an inferior pitch level to L’s initial syllable: these segments are in the same vocal paragraph. The subordinate clause is one that does not express a complete thought and cannot stand alone as a separate grammatical entity since its meaning depends on the meaning of the main clause. The weak distribution of prosodic cues in the expression of foreground suggests that speakers preferentially use this modality for demarcation. ), Péry-Woodley, Marie-Paule. Oxford, UK: Oxford University Press, 2008. Key words: subordinate clauses, syntactic features, nominal clauses, adnominal relative clauses 1. 63Appositive relative clauses feature two prosodic tendencies for prominence. Table 5. . Christchurch, NZ: CSLI Publications (2004), 391–397. Lehmann, Christian. yld 2003). 87Adverbial clauses display the highest distribution of high rising contours. Kleiber, Georges. 3a. Sc establishes the first essential descriptive element in an experiential order (The plane goes through turbulence. 8 According to Grosz et al. Oxford, UK: Oxford University Press, 2003. Finally, in the rich framework of syntactical relations proposed by Matthiessen & Thompson (1988: 238), adverbials and non-restrictive relatives are “less subordinate” than other structures, belonging to relations of hypotactic combination rather than embedding. Berlin, Germany. Amsterdam and Philadelphia, PA: John Benjamins, 1992. 72As seen in the results section, no syntactic or semantic cue is mainly used to index foreground information in appositive relative clauses. The increase in representational gestures is illustrated in example (11) in the Discussion section. Subordinate Clauses Coordination. “Intonational Signals of Subordination.” Proceedings of the Annual Meeting of the Berkeley Linguistics Society. Cotte, Pierre. Table 7. Table 9 presents the gestural characteristics of restrictive relative clauses. 96Example (16) also highlights the highest rate of direct transitivity of restrictive relative clauses: Sc features a direct transitive verbal form (i.e. Pointing gestures are deictics whereas beats are linked with speech rhythm. “Adverbial Clauses: An Enunciative Approach.” In A. Celle and S. Gresset (eds. In (4), “the little bits” open an informational file, completed with “stick out” as a defining feature introduced with “that”. 64Appositive relative clauses also visually index modal and pragmatic foci, through various articulators. 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. Instead, they connect them by reference.
