Elena presented recent work on Catalan interrogative tag “eh?”, which has two pragmatic uses which have not been adressed from a formal perspective. This talk was interspersed with other presentations on various types of biased questions, modal particles in questions, prosody or scope-marking in interrogatives across languages.

Konstanz welcomed us with a summer-like weather, which permitted nice strolls along the river, by the lake and through the old town.
