Wouden, Ton van der and Ad Foolen 2021 Chapter 2. Dutch pragmatic markers in the left peripheryPragmatic Markers and Peripheries, Van Olmen, Daniël and Jolanta Šinkūnienė (eds.), pp. 49–74 | Chapter
This chapter explores the left periphery of Dutch utterances. Four positions hosting pragmatic markers (PMs) are distinguished: the first sentence position (P1), a position following P1 and two positions respectively preceding and following a left dislocated constituent. We hypothesize that there… read more

Foolen, Ad 2019 Chapter 6. The value of left and rightEmotion in Discourse, Mackenzie, J. Lachlan and Laura Alba-Juez (eds.), pp. 139–158 | Chapter
This chapter focuses on the emotive value (‘axiology’) of words for left and right in different languages. As a general picture, an asymmetry emerges, with a positive value for right and a negative one for left. The chapter further explores whether this asymmetry is reflected in other domains like… read more
Foolen, Ad, Helen de Hoop and Gijs Mulder 2018 Introduction: Evidentiality: How do you know?Evidence for Evidentiality, Foolen, Ad, Helen de Hoop and Gijs Mulder (eds.), pp. 1–16 | Introduction
Hoop, Helen de, Ad Foolen, Gijs Mulder and Vera van Mulken 2018 Chapter 3. I think and I believe: Evidential expressions in DutchEvidence for Evidentiality, Foolen, Ad, Helen de Hoop and Gijs Mulder (eds.), pp. 77–97 | Chapter
This chapter focuses on the evidential use of Dutch denken ‘think’ and geloven ‘believe’ with a first person pronoun. On the basis of Twitter data we conclude that some constructions containing these verbs show features of grammaticalization and that the evidentiality at stake can be labelled as… read more
Foolen, Ad 2017 Chapter 7. The hand in figurative thought and languageStudies in Figurative Thought and Language, Athanasiadou, Angeliki (ed.), pp. 179–198 | Chapter
The hand is a rich source of figurative language. The paper claims that this richness has to do with the central role of the hand in human active involvement in the world. This claim fits recent developments in phenomenological philosophy, according to which cognition is based on… read more

Foolen, Ad 2015 Word valence and its effectsEmotion in Language: Theory – research – application, Lüdtke, Ulrike M. (ed.), pp. 241–256 | Article
Cognitive science underwent an ‘emotional turn’ in recent years. Besides the rational part of the brain, the ‘other half of the human mind’ (see Parisi 2011) is now taken into consideration as well. Linguistics, with its strong orientation and links to cognitive science, cannot neglect this… read more
Coppen, Peter-Arno and Ad Foolen 2012 Dutch quotative van: Past and presentQuotatives: Cross-linguistic and cross-disciplinary perspectives, Buchstaller, Isabelle and Ingrid van Alphen (eds.), pp. 259–280 | Article
The quotative use of the Dutch preposition van ‘of’ can be considered as the Dutch counterpart of English like, German so and similar items in other languages, the use of which has increased significantly in many languages of the world in the last four decades. Stylistically, quotative van occurs… read more
Foolen, Ad 2012 The relevance of emotion for language and linguisticsMoving Ourselves, Moving Others: Motion and emotion in intersubjectivity, consciousness and language, Foolen, Ad, Ulrike M. Lüdtke, Timothy P. Racine and Jordan Zlatev (eds.), pp. 347–368 | Article
The relevance of emotion for language and linguistics is considered from three perspectives: (a) the conceptualization of emotions, (b) the expression of emotions and (c) the grounding of language. As to the conceptualization perspective, research on the emotional lexicon is discussed. Not only… read more
Foolen, Ad and Helen de Hoop 2009 Conflicting constraints on the interpretation of modal auxiliariesCross-linguistic Semantics of Tense, Aspect, and Modality, Hogeweg, Lotte, Helen de Hoop and Andrej L. Malchukov (eds.), pp. 303–316 | Article
The Dutch modal auxiliaries kunnen ‘can’ and moeten ‘must’ can be interpreted in different ways: ‘participant-internal, ‘participant-external’, and epistemic. For each of the verbs, we assume a basic, default interpretation: ‘participant-internal’ for kunnen, ‘participant-external’ for moeten. In… read more
