Latin quidem and the structure of the move

C.H.M. Kroon

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingConference contributionAcademic


Discourse models usually distinguish three types of structural units, commonly called act, move and exchange. These are far from unequivocal notions, as is argued by for instance Hannay & Kroon (2005) for the act. In this article I focus on the concept move, and on various types of move structure, in order to demonstrate that the Latin particle quidem ¿ an allegedly highly polyfunctional word - can be adequately described in terms of a particular structuring device on the level of the move
