Abstract : Among the discourse connectives – lexical items conveying discourse relations – are the subordinate conjunctions (SubConjs), like because, even if or although. SubConjs have generally been considered a homogeneous category, however previous work has shown they can be divided into two classes according to their syntactic and semantic properties. Similarly, attitude verbs and reporting verbs (AVs) have two different uses in discourse: evidential and intentional. Drawing from these observations, we propose a STAG model of SubConjs and AVs taking into account both their syntactic and discursive properties.
