Embedded declaratives, assertion and swear words
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Languages, Department of Scandinavian Languages.

Abstract [en]

This article discusses embedded declaratives and their force of expressing assertion, a topic that was debated by Anna-Lena Wiklund and Marit Julien in both numbers of this working paper series 2009. Two questions are focused: “Is the assertedness of V2 de­claratives in Mainland Scandinavian structurally inherent?” and “Can also embedded non-V2 declaratives express assertion?” The answer here is yes on both questions, which means that I take a third position beside the ones raised in the previous debate.

A swear word test, originally proposed by Julien, but rejected by Wiklund, is also scrutinized. It is shown that swear words actually can be used to discriminate between asserted and non-asserted declaratives. However, the dividing line does not go between V2 and non-V2 clauses, as assumed by Julien.
