In this paper we propose a pragmatic analysis of the Modern Greek Indicative, following a systematic hierarchical classification of propositional and behavioural basic illocutions (Hengeveld et al. 2007). Morphosyntax, Pragmatics and Phonology .allow us to establish each basic illocution in terms of its prosodic contour; the use of segmental markers; grammatical tense restrictions, including number and person restrictions; aspectual restrictions; and the potential answer provided by an addressee to a question, or to a question-like utterance. To that end, we outline prosodic contours in 5 defined intonation patterns and we demonstrate how they apply to Indicative’s uses with distinct encoding.
