C05 - Discourse referents as perspectival centres

In the second phase of the project we will primarily investigate Free Indirect Discourse (FID) as a prominence-lending feature. Via experimental methods we will pursue the question of how FID influences the prominence status of protagonists functioning as implicit thinkers, as well as the prominence status of propositions that are interpreted as thoughts of the respective protagonist.
