Examining the syntax and semantics of discourse markers, this book employs a syntactic approach to describe discourse markers in Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), relevant in a theory of discourse because it provides a framework in which all levels of grammar can be integrated. Since discourse markers operate at discourse level, a well developed discourse theory is required - in Brand: Miriam Urgelles-Coll; Siobhan Chapman. In this book, Miriam Urgelles-Col examines€the syntax and semantics of discourse markers.€ A discourse marker can loosely be defined as an item such as well or now, coming at the beginning of an€utterance and marking a€boundary between one part of spoken discourse and the next, signalling€the start of a new section of the discourse. 4 The Syntax and Semantics of Discourse Markers A dismissive anyway has been widely accepted and described by previous authors. This use always connects to previous discourse, as the previous piece of discourse is what is being dismissed, or considered an unimportant matter. This meaning is probably the closest to the discourse marker use. In this book, Miriam Urgelles-Col examines the syntax and semantics of discourse markers. A discourse marker can loosely be defined as an item such as well or now, coming at the beginning of an utterance and marking a boundary between one part of spoken discourse and the next, signalling the start of a new section of the discourse.

This book will provide a valuable resource for students and researchers in linguistics with an interest in discourse markers, natural language argumentation, formal semantics, the interfaces between syntax, semantics and pragmatics, linguistic theorisation and French – or “poststructural” – models of discourse analysis. click to read more.

Relevance and Linguistic Meaning: The Semantics and Pragmatics of Discourse Markers Diane Blakemore 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.

Examining the syntax and semantics of discourse markers, this book employs a syntactic approach to describe discourse markers in Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar (HPSG), relevant in a theory of discourse because it provides a framework in which all levels of grammar can be integrated.   Looking back on three decades of research on focus markers, I will make a cautious attempt to give an overview over this rich set of relevant publications, trying to identify and distinguish general trends, important results, open questions, obvious gaps and errors. I will provide further evidence for the view that focus markers interact with the information structure of a sentence or text, i.
