This book, situated within the framework of Comparative Interactional Linguistics, explores a family of fourteen discourse markers across the languages of Europe and beyond, arguing that they go back to one, possibly two, particles: NU/NA. The volume contributes to the synchronic interactional cross-linguistic study of discourse markers and their grammaticization as well as to the study of language contact.Biografía del autor:

Buchbeschreibung Walter De Gmbh Gruyter Okt 2016, 2016. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 236x159x35 mm. Neuware - This book, situated within the framework of Comparative Interactional Linguistics, explores a family of fourteen discourse markers across the languages of Europe and beyond (Yiddish, Hebrew, Russian, Polish, Romani, Estonian, Finnish, Upper Saxonian and Standard German, Dutch, Icelandic, and Swedish), arguing that they go back to one, possibly two, particles: NU/NÅ. Each chapter analyzes the use of one of the NU/NÅ family members in a particular language, usually on the basis of conversational data, feeding into a comprehensive chapter on the structure, function, and history of these particles. The approach taken in this volume broadens the functional linguistic concept of 'structure' to include the sequential positioning of the particles and their composition, and the concept of 'function' to include the conversational actions performed in interaction. Employing conversation analytic methodology thus enables a study of the ways these particles acquire meaning within certain sequential and action environments -- both cross-linguistically and with regard to the grammaticization of the particles. All this sheds light on the borrowing patterns of NU/NÅ across the languages. With contributions by Peter Auer, Galina B.
