Common Discourse Particles in English Conversation, Hardback Book

Common Discourse Particles in English Conversation Hardback

Part of the RLE: Discourse Analysis series

Description

First published in 1985, this book studies several common items in English conversation known variously as `discourse particles', `interjections', `discourse markers', and, more informally, `hesitations' or `fillers'.

While the analysis primarily focuses on `like', `well' and `you know', the larger concern is the entire set of items of which these are members and as such `I mean', `now', `oh', `hey', and `aha' are also examined.

These discourse particles are analysed at length and then a framework is proposed in which their use individually makes sense and allows revealing comparisons to be made between them.

This book will be of interest to students of linguistics
