Title: Discourse Markers in Native and Non-native English Discourse
Written By: Simone Müller
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20138
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 138
Description:

While discourse markers have been examined in some detail, little is known
about their usage by non-native speakers. This book provides valuable
insights into the functions of four discourse markers (so, well, you know
and like) in native and non-native English discourse, adding to both
discourse marker literature and to studies in the pragmatics of learner
language. It presents a thorough analysis on the basis of a substantial
parallel corpus of spoken language. In this corpus, American students who
are native speakers of English and German non-native speakers of English
retell and discuss a silent movie. Each of the main chapters of the book is
dedicated to one discourse marker, giving a detailed analysis of the
functions this discourse marker fulfills in the corpus and a quantitative
comparison between the two speaker groups. The book also develops a
two-level model of discourse marker functions comprising a textual and an
interactional level.
