Editor for this issue: Jessica Boynton
We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query. To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Message 2: General Discourse Extenders and Things Like That

Subject: General Discourse Extenders and Things Like That
I am currently writing up a paper on general discourse extenders (a.k.a.
set marking tags ...'and things like that', 'and everything', etc) in the
language of British children. I am aware of M. Overstreet's seminal work on
this topic, in addition to work done by Sylvie Dubois as well as several
Australian researchers. I am looking for cross-linguistic examples,
parrticularly from children/ adolescents, but also from adults too. I would
be very grateful if anyone can send examples/comments/ useful pointers/
details of publications, etc, particularly from non-western languages.
