Description This seminar presents current advances in the different approaches to and applications of the theory of information structure. The focus is on the multifarious aspects of information structure arising from its close relationship to other linguistic disciplines. The papers address the informational aspect of discourse from the viewpoint of context, the theme-rheme / topic-focus structure of the sentence, the structure of larger textual units and the role of intonation, especially in spoken discourse. The analyses are based on the material of written and spoken texts and parallel bi-lingual or multilingual corpora.
