Slides for a plenary I gave at the Total Reduplication workshop organised by Daniela Rossi. The other plenary speakers were David Gil (MPI-EVA), Thomas Stolz (U. Bremen), and Silvia Kouwenberg (UWI, Mona).
Slides for my recent paper ‘Ideophones in unexpected places’, presented at LDLT2 in London, November 13-14. Though the inquisitive rooster in the title slide may not be looking for them, there are ideophones for just about any salient feature depicted in this scene. But what are people using them for? And what specialized uses may arise out of the core interactional functions of ideophones? Those are the questions addressed in this paper.
