Abstract:

This set of eleven articles, by linguists from four different European
countries and a variety of theoretical backgrounds, takes a new look at the
discourse functions of a number of English connectives, from simple
coordinators (and, but) to phrases of varying complexity (after all, the
fact is that). Using authentic spoken and written data from varied sources,
the authors explore the ways in which current uses of connectives result
from the interaction of syntax, semantics and prosody, both over time and
through diversity of discourse situations. Most adopt an integrative
approach in which speaker-listener or writer-reader relationships are
viewed as part and parcel of the linguistic properties of each marker.
Because it combines functional, generative and enunciative approaches into
a coherent whole with a common explanatory aim, this book will be of
interest to linguists, corpus linguists and all those who investigate the
semantics-pragmatics interface.
