Abstract:

This volume provides new insights into the nature of the Early Modern English
discourse markers marry, well and why through the analysis of three corpora (A
Corpus of English Dialogues, 1560-1760, the Parsed Corpus of Early English
Correspondence, and the Penn-Helsinki Parsed Corpus of Early Modern English).
By combining both quantitative and qualitative approaches in the study of
pragmatic markers, innovative findings are reached about their distribution
throughout the period 1500-1760, their attestation in different speech-related
text types as well as similarities and differences in their functions.
Additionally, this work engages in a sociopragmatic study, based on the
sociopragmatically annotated Drama Corpus of almost a quarter of a million
words, to enhance our understanding about their use by characters of different
social status and gender. This volume therefore constitutes an essential piece
of the puzzle in our attempt to gain a full picture of discourse marker use.
