Interrogative "complements" and question design in Estonian

2011 (English)In: 'Subordination' in Conversation: A Cross-Linguistic Perspective / [ed] Ritva Laury & Ryoko Suzuki, Amsterdam/Philadelphia: John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2011, p. 37-68Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Some interrogative subject and object complement clauses are not treated as subordinate in Estonian interaction. They are interactionally profiled, as participants answer them as questions. Grammatically, they behave like independent clauses, displaying inversion and the turn-final question particle vä/ve. The main clauses considered in the chapter, ütle/öelge ‘say!’, räägi ‘talk/tell!’, ei tea ‘not know’, and uvitav ‘interesting’, instead function as (epistemic) particles projecting and designing questions in a sequentially and interpersonally sensitive way
