Adjectives

A comparison of the interpersonal metafunction in English and Slovenian

On Tuesday, February 14th, at 1.10pm in room 3.62, we’re holding a postgrad research seminar. Monika Kavalir is visiting us from Slovenia for one week and she is working on the contribution that the Interpersonal Metafunction makes at the level below the clause, specifically exploring the hypothesis that adjectives can be used either absolutely or relatively in all three degrees in English and Slovenian. She will be presenting her work to us, which will be followed by discussion. This is a very friendly and casual session, please do join us if you are interested in the interpersonal functions of language and/or descriptions of non-English languages. If you have any questions, you can email me.
