Samenvatting (EN)

In the field of (cognitive) linguistics, there is a renewed interest in the question to what extent the form of linguistic expressions is a consequence of speaker-dependent or addressee-dependent factors. Basically, the underlying problem is whether speakers mainly "speak for themselves", or whether they adapt their expressions to the needs and background of their addressees. To tackle this general problem, previous research has often looked at how speakers make lexical decisions. Instead, the current project aims to focus on prosodic variables, like intonation, loudness, and durational patterns.
