SHARED LINGUISTIC COGNITION: LINGUISTIC MARKING OF METACOGNITIVE PROCESSES
T. A. Klepikova
Linguistic cognition should be qualified and analysed as shared linguistic cog-nition for language itself evolved on interactional basis. Most linguistic categories are interactional in their nature (evidentials, logophoricity, sentential complementation, articles, etc.). The cognitive basis for linguistic interactionality is metacognition – ability to dynamically metarepresent and monitor the content of the interlocutor’s mind in the course of communication. One of the peculiar functions of linguistic metacognition is epistemic vigilance – indexing the epistemic validity of the incoming information.
