Abstract:
This paper is an proposes an initial investigation of the syntax semantics and pragmatics of the particle Re in Greek. Re is a very common particle in familiar spoken discourse. We show in the this paper that this particle is worthy of in depth investigation as it seems to have a significant impact on the focus structure of the sentences where it occurs but most importantly also it affects the scope of indefinites. Thus a discourse only theory as has been advocated for other similar particles seems not enough. We offer here various pointers at possible analyses at the different required levels.
