Regarding query:

In Linguistlist 14.1163, 22 April 2003, I posted a summary to this query.

I am now adding that the following article, based in part on Linguistlist
members' responses, was published (despite its official date given below)
in July 2004:

Huttar, Charles A. 2002. Introductory And as a Device in Poetry-Making.
Philological Quarterly 81.139-157.

Linguistlist readers may be particularly interested in the use made of
notions from Sperber, Wilson, Blakemore, and Noh.
