Self-addressed questions in disfluencies

Jonathan Ginzburg, Raquel Fernández, David Schlangen

The paper considers self-addressed queries – queries speakers address to themselves in the aftermath of a filled pause. We study their distribution in the BNC and show that such queries show signs of sensitivity to the syntactic/semantic type of the sub-utterance they follow. We offer a formal model that explains the coherence of such queries.
