Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 99Relevance and Linguistic Meaning: The Semantics and Pragmatics of Discourse Markers0521640075, 9780521640077, 9780511066177

Author : Diane Blakemore
"""Description:The importance of discourse markers (words like ""so,"" ""however,"" and ""well"") lies in the theoretical questions they raise about the nature of discourse and the relationship between linguistic meaning and context. Diane Blakemore asserts that the exercise in classification that has dominated discourse marker research should be replaced by the investigation of the way in which linguistic expressions contribute to the inferential processes involved in utterance understanding."""
