<p>There seem to be problems with the video, here is an external link: <a href="https://vimeo.com/406005044" rel="nofollow">https://vimeo.com/406005044</a>. Password: lewis.</p> <p>I will be available for the live Q&A session via zoom on April 9, 16:00--17:00 (Central European time); <a href="https://zoom.us/j/243647667" rel="nofollow">https://zoom.us/j/243647667</a> (Meeting ID: 243 647 667). I am also happy to answer questions via email any time (n.korotkova@ucla.edu).</p> <p>Abstract:</p> <p>This paper develops a novel account of evidentials as self-attributions. I argue that this account explains in a principled way several patterns that characterize the behavior of evidentials cross-linguistically: (i) a strictly autocentric perspective in root declaratives; (ii) obligatory de se construal in attitudes; (iii) resistance to direct denials in dialogues, , and (iv) lack of speaker-oriented interpretations in information-seeking questions. Those patterns have been viewed as unrelated, or have not even been discussed, in the previous literature. I propose that they are rooted in the fact that evidentials describe self-knowledge, and derive the linguistic behavior of evidentials from the interaction of their conventional meaning and the properties of cognitive processes they describe. In addition to providing a uniform solution to the known puzzles, I further demonstrate that the subjective account makes correct new predictions not made by previous analyses of evidentiality.</p>
