German particle "also"
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
Dear Linguistlist readers,|
I am currently working on the English discourse marker "so" in the
speech of native speakers and German non-native speakers of
English. Classifying the occurring instances of "so", I wondered
whether the Germans' usage of "so" might be influenced by the
German particle "also". Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find
specific analyses on the usages and functions of this particle.
Therefore my question: Does anybody know of literature analysing
the functions of the German particle "also"?
I would be grateful for any hint!
