The Question Under Discussion (QUD)

This lecture looks at the role of QUD in processing. What kinds of QUD are accommodated? When does the QUD influence processing? Does it influence the processing of the sentence, or only the inferences drawn at the end of the sentence concerning how the sentence connects to discourse?
