Abstract:

Metalanguage in Interaction is about the crystallization of
metalanguage employed throughout interaction into the discourse markers
which permeate talk. Based on close analysis of naturally-occurring Hebrew
conversation, it is a synchronic study of the grammaticization of discourse
markers, a phenomenon until now mostly studied from a diachronic
perspective. It constitutes the first monograph in the fields of Hebrew
interactional linguistics and Hebrew discourse markers. The book first
presents what is unique to the present approach to discourse markers and
gives them an operational definition. Discourse markers are explored as a
system, illuminating their patterning in terms of function, structure, and
the moments in interaction at which they are employed. Next, detailed
analysis of four Hebrew discourse markers illuminates not only the
functions and grammaticization patterns of these markers, but also what
they reveal about quintessential aspects of Israeli society, identity, and
culture. The conclusion discusses commonalities and differences in the
grammaticization patterns of the four markers, and relates the
grammaticization of discourse markers from interaction to projectability in
discourse.
