Abstract

This communication aims to examine the interaction between the mandatory shape and the (vaan) focal particle in Finnish injunctions. We will analyse the sequential position of the injunctive statement and how vaan guides the interpretation of expectations implicitly or explicitly present in the context. The data analysed come from the body of Finnish conversations (University of Helsinki) and from literary sources.
