Greetings from the past: on the use of interjections in foreign language textbooks from Early modern Flanders (01N00819)

This project focuses on interjections in spoken 16th-century Dutch, contrasted with other Germanic and Romance languages. We will investigate their semantic-pragmatic functions based on a parallel corpus of multilingual textbooks (Colloquia, et dictionariolum, 1536-1700) which we will
compile. The project will also provide insight into aspects of linguistic and cultural knowledge transfer through language teaching in Early modern Flanders.
