  • TITLE: Exploring (Inter)Subjectivity and Constructional Changes

    AUTHORS: Xu Yang

    KEYWORDS: (Inter)Subjectivity, Constructional Change, Constructionalization

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Social Sciences, Vol.3 No.6, June 24, 2015

    ABSTRACT: Subjectivity is a property of language and it concerns speaker’s expressions of his own evaluation and his imprint shown in an utterance. Inter subjectivity is a derivational form of subjectivity, implicating the speaker’s recognition to the addressee and paying attention to the needs of an addressee’s face and self-image. Subjectivity can prompt the constructional change and bring about constructionalization. This research probes into the politeness realization in daily expressions and proposes that (inter)subjectivity is closely connected with constructional change. Subjectification can be regarded as one of main factors which bring about constructionalization.
