Abstract: Green and Griffiths have introduced several notions of singularities associated with normal functions, especially in connection with middle-dimensional primitive Hodge classes. In this paper, by using the more elementary aspects of the Decomposition Theorem, we define global and local singularities associated with primitive middle-dimensional cohomology classes, and by using the Relative Hard Lefschetz Theorem, we show that these singularities detect the global and local triviality of the primitive class.
