Title: Discourse Markers Across Languages
Written By: Dirk Siepmann
Series Title: Routledge Advances in Corpus Linguistics

This book offers a corpus-based comparative study of an almost entirely
unexplored set of multi-word lexical items serving pragmatic or
text-structuring functions. Part One provides a descriptive account of
multi-word discourse markers in written English, French and German,
focusing on discussion of interlingual equivalence. Part Two examines the
use of multi-word markers by non-native speakers of English and discusses
lexicographical and pedagogical implications.
