Example text

29 On the other hand, in practice, this expression is not used as often as the other attitude indicating expressions and force modifying expressions discussed here. Even when it is used, the expression does not, as a rule, indicate a standpoint, but rather a concession. This is the case in: (41) I know that it is half past three, but why not have just one more? The following example shows that ‘do’ can be introduced to mark this type of concession: (42) I do know that it is half past three, but let’s have just one more.

Before I vote, I want to see what the area looks like,’ says Ethel ten Brink. ‘I was against the plan, but now that I see this I’m beginning to have doubts about what I have to do’. [. ] Her friend Wim Vermeer is confident, ‘I’m still against the plan. I think building flats above the motorway is a better plan. […] I don’t see why there should be apartment blocks over here’.

As far as we are concerned, the rule of thumb would be that we have a standpoint if ‘I believe that’ can be paraphrased by ‘it is my opinion that’ or ‘I am sure that’. If a paraphrase like ‘I suspect that’, ‘I assume that’ or ‘if I am correct’ seems to be more appropriate, the context decides whether or not we still have a standpoint. This becomes clear if we look at the different uses of ‘I believe that’ in the following text: (23) 24 I believe that the work that surgeon does is a lot heavier than that nurse’s job, and that you simply have to, yes it may sound silly, but that you somehow have to pay for that man’s education as well, I don’t know, I believe that it An exception seems, in first instance, the use of ‘I believe that’ in combination with an argumentative assertion.
