Abstract
I will be concerned in this paper with such concepts as topic, focus and
cognitive status of discourse referents, which have been included under the
label information structure (alternatively information status), as they relate
in some sense to the distribution of given and new information. I will focus on
the question of which aspects of information structural concepts and their
properties are grammatically constrained and which are constrained by general
cognitive and communicative principles that are independent of grammar.
These are broad questions, and I obviously cannot hope to answer them fully
and completely here. Instead, I will outline the kind of framework that I think
needs to serve as the background for asking these questions and will make
some tentative proposals for selected informational structural facts and
properties within that framework.
