The literature attributes this property to the notat- issue status of the information contributed by evidentials. I argue against this view and show that with respect to disagreement, evidentials pattern with subjective expressions such as first-person belief and pain reports. Like other subjective expressions and unlike e.g. appositives, evidentials ban all kinds of disagreement about content and not just explicit denial. This novel observation has no account in the literature. It falls out naturally once a theory of evidentiality incorporates subjectivity. It is thus unnecessary to appeal to a special discourse status of evidentials to explain their behavior in conversations.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Disagreement with Evidentials : A Call for Subjectivity</dcterms:title> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-01-27T13:46:46Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Korotkova, Natalia</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Korotkova, Natalia</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/48394"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-01-27T13:46:46Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dcterms:issued>2016</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
