Abstract:

Fillers are items that speakers insert in spontaneous speech as a repair
strategy. Types of fillers include hesitation markers and placeholders.
Both are used to fill pauses that arise during planning problems or in
lexical retrieval failure. However, while hesitation markers may not bear
any resemblance to lexical items they replace, placeholders typically share
some morphosyntactic properties with the target form. Additionally, fillers
can function as a pragmatic tool, in order to replace lexical items that
the speaker wants to avoid mentioning for some reason.

The present volume is the first collection on the topic of fillers and will
be a useful reference work for future investigations on the topic. It
consists of typological surveys and in-depth studies exploring the form and
use of fillers across languages and sections of different populations,
including cognitively impaired speakers. The volume will be interesting to
typologists and linguists working in discourse studies.
