Abstract:

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