Query Details


Query Subject:   query: discourse-initial 'and'

Query:   Can anyone suggest bibliography treating discourse-initial use of
'and', whether in poetry or in ordinary conversation? It appears to
suggest a tie to something assumed to be knopwn by both speaker and
hearer. Does this come under echoic utterances, or
metarepresentation? Or...?

Thanks. I'll post a summary if replies warrant it.
