Title: The Imperative of Say as a Pragmatic Marker in English and Dutch
Author: Daniël Van Olmen
Institution: North-West University Potchefstroom
Linguistic Field: Historical Linguistics; Pragmatics; Text/Corpus Linguistics
Subject Language: Dutch
English
Abstract: This article examines the imperative of say as a pragmatic marker in English and Dutch. Present-day say and zeg ‘say’ are contrasted on the basis of comparable corpus data. This comparison, together with additional diachronic data, serves as input for a study of the typical developments of the imperative of say as a pragmatic marker. Further-more, on the basis of a wider range of European and other languages, the article explores the possibility of the developments in English and Dutch being an areal phenomenon.
