Hélène Vinckel schlägt eine andere Perspektive vor: Sie versteht unter 'Nachfeld' die place nach einem syntaktischen "Grenzsignal", die unter anderem durch 'rechtsverschobene' bzw. 'adjungierte' verbfreie Konstituenten besetzt werden kann. Der Hauptakzent liegt auf der Beschreibung und Erörterung der kommunikativ-pragmatischen und diskursstrategischen Funktionen solcher Nachfeldbesetzungen, wobei insbesondere deren Rolle bei der Informationsstrukturierung und die Auswirkungen auf rhetorisch-argumentativer Ebene untersucht werden. Als Grundlage der empirisch angelegten Studie dienen politische Reden aus der Zeit der "Wende". Ein umfangreicher Ausschnitt aus dem Korpus ist als Anhang beigegeben.
