In the third talk I will continue the discussion of grammatical features, focusing on two features used for emphasis: cleft sentences and dislocation. While the former can also occur in the more formal varieties of English, dislocation tends to appear in the more informal contexts as speakers place certain elements, typically noun phrases, at the beginning or the end of an utterance. I will also discuss the functions of these features, which include emphasis and identification.
