9780080446769: Pragmatic Markers in Contrast (SiP 2) (Studies in Pragmatics)

Building on the first volume in the Studies in Pragmatics series which clearly set out the differences and similarities in approaches to discourse markers, Pragmatic Markers in Contrast continues the debate through offering a unique and thorough examination of the methods and theories for studying pragmatic markers cross-linguistically.

As a result of internationalisation and new developments in linguistics there has been an increasing interest in cross-linguistic studies. Aijmer and Simon-Vandenbergen have assembled experts in this field to explore the comparison of pragmatic markers across languages in order to offer important insights into the similarities and differences between languages. Contrastive studies can also shed more light on the pragmatic and discourse functions that pragmatic markers fulfil in the languages compared. Another issue is to what extent pragmatic markers which have evolved from the same lexical source have developed similar functions in different languages. An impressively large number of different approaches are represented in this volume as well as a wide range of languages including; English, Swedish, Spanish, Dutch, German, French, Norwegian and Solv (a dialect of Finland Swedish).

Review:

Pre-publication quotes:
"The empirical studies presented here by international experts offer important new insights into the field of pragmatic markers across languages."
--Jan Svartvik, Lund University

"This volume moves the study of pragmatic markers in a new and exciting direction. Making use of both translation and comparable corpora from a wide variety of European languages, the articles in this collection provide richly detailed, contrastive accounts while at the same time serving to expand our understanding of pragmatic markers in a larger cross-linguistic perspective."
--Laurel J. Brinton, Professor, University of British Columbia, Canada
