While authors have long debated on whether this intuition tracks a lexical distinction between subjective and factual predicates, much remains to be explored on whether, and how, the difference between these two assertions is reflected at the illocutionary level. Relying on evidence from two experiments, we show that assertions containing subjective predicates display different discourse behavior from objective assertions. We take these findings to support the idea that SAs should be assigned a special illocutionary profile, unveiling a genuine empirical difference between subjective and factual speech.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/59101"/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/59101/1/Beltrama_2-1kkjtdg44r84q6.pdf"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/45"/> <dc:creator>Beltrama, Andrea</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Subjective assertions are weak : Exploring the illocutionary profile of perspective-dependent predicates</dcterms:title> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/59101/1/Beltrama_2-1kkjtdg44r84q6.pdf"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
