that would explain the same data by introducing an additional system (say, a hybrid system) of a different kind. Thus, the data of interest to proponents of the extended view do not motivate the commitment to an extended system. What could motivate such a commitment would be the discovery of an
of meaning containing transitional or hybrid types; functor words like prepositions and conjunctions are examples of hybrids that carry both lexical and grammatical semantic freight. From the supra- and segmental features of phonology through morphology, syntax, and discourse pragmatics, all of

Needless to say, this theoretical framework makes do with much more than deciding whether pairings of form and function (constructions) are stored, frequently used, register-driven, or discourse sensitive. The real problem

In ordinary conversations, indexical pronouns denote the features of the utterance context. When a different speech context/world is made prominent, as in hybrid
if only the expressive component should be rejected. (12) A: Lessing was a Boche. B′: #No, I don’t approve this way of speaking. B′′: #No, I like Germans. Gutzman (2008) proposes to extend Potts’ system by including composition rules for pure and hybrid expressive types as well as mixed expressives
supporting the original no-narrator hypothesis (Banfield, 1982). I further argued that FID is a third kind of speech and thought representation, occupying its own legitimate place in the logical typology of speech/thought reports, rather than a hybrid of the most ‘mimetic’ Direct Discourse ( DD ) and the

In this sense, my new PDRS can be thought of as a hybrid representation that provides not only the truth conditions, as in formal semantics, but also the mental representations of the language user, as in cognitive linguistics. In (34) above, the time(pov) is updated
