Epistemik und Common Ground.
Quantitative und qualitative Untersuchung epistemischer Ausdrücke im Korpus
In the present article it is hypothesized that epistemic markers are combined in texts and together constitute an epistemic background. To verify this an automatic corpus based co-occurrence analysis was performed. Based on the quantitative results, subcategories of epistemic markers were defined. These were later established theoretically using the common-ground model of Stalnaker. The constitution of common ground was then qualitatively analyzed on the basis of selected texts.
