This book is a cross-linguistic study that systematically investigates modal particles and focus particles in three sign languages: DGS, NGT, and ISL. In Herrmann (, ), DGS was only compared to ISL.

Introduction Focus particles (FPs), such as nur ‘only’, auch ‘also’, and sogar ‘even’, are generally assumed to interact with the information structure of the sentences in which they occur.

In the standard case, they are associated with a focused element to their right, referred to Cited by:   Partly due to disagreement on acceptability judgements, there is little agreement on the possibility of PP-internal and DP-internal focus particles in languages such as Dutch, English, and German.

Our large-scale corpus investigation reveals that PP-internal focus particles are a genuine possibility, not only in English, but also in Dutch and, to a lesser extent, by: The impact of focus particles on the recognition and rejection of contrastive alternatives Article (PDF Available) in Language and Cognition January with Reads.
