Interrogative “complements” and question design in Estonian
Some interrogative subject and object complement clauses are not treated as subordinate in Estonian interaction. They are interactionally profiled, as participants answer them as questions. Grammatically, they behave like independent clauses, displaying inversion and the turn-final question particle <i>vä/ve</i>. The main clauses considered in the chapter, <i>ütle/öelge</i> ‘say!’, <i>räägi</i> ‘talk/tell!’, <i>ei tea</i> ‘not know’, and <i>uvitav</i> ‘interesting’, instead function as (epistemic) particles projecting and designing questions in a sequentially and interpersonally sensitive way.
