The GEL project (Grammar in Everyday Life) analyzes three action types in Danish everyday interactions with the purpose of using these action descriptions as a basis for constructing a grammar of Danish talk-in-interaction. In our panel, the current GEL project members (Maria Jørgensen, Nicholas Mikkelsen and Jakob Steensig) will present their results on “proform questions”, requests for immediate action and the use of the final particle ikkå (close to ‘right’, but not quite) and sum up some consequences of these results for a grammatical description. Marja-Leena Sorjonen will then comment on the presented papers and discuss the suggested implications. After this, we open up to a discussion based on discussion points we have set up.
