The Oxford Latin Syntax

Harm Pinkster

Oxford University Press

Chapter 22 deals with various aspects of the pragmatic organization of Latin texts and sentences. A distinction is made between constituents that function as topic or as focus in their clause. In addition constituents can be contrastive or emphatic. Emphasis is often made clear through emphatic particles, which are discussed in detail. Three types of extraclausal constituents are distinguished: themes, settings, and tails. Other extraclausal constituents are curses, interjections, and forms of address.

Keywords:   Pragmatic, topic, focus, contrast, emphasis, theme, setting, tail, curse, interjection, address
