Abstract:

There are few aspects of language which are more problematic than its
discourse particles. The present study of discourse particles draws
upon data from the London-Lund Corpus to show how the methods and
tools of corpora can sharpen their description. The first part of the
book provides a picture of the state of the art in discourse particle
studies and introduces the theory and methodology for the analysis in
the second part of the book. Discourse particles are analysed as
elements which have been grammaticalised and as a result have certain
properties and uses. The importance of linguistic and contextual cues
such as text type, position in the discourse, prosody and collocation
for analysing discourse particles is illustrated. The following
chapters deal with specific discourse particles (now, oh, just, sort
of, and that sort of thing, actually) on the basis of their empirical
analysis in the London-Lund Corpus. Examples and extended extracts
from many different text types are provided to illustrate what
discourse particles are doing in discourse.
