Blakemore, D 2002, Relevance and linguistic meaning: the semantics and pragmatics of discourse markers , Cambridge studies in linguistics, 99 , Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK.Full text not available from this repository.
The importance of discourse markers (words like "so," "however," and "well") lies in the theoretical questions they raise about the nature of discourse and the relationship between linguistic meaning and context. Diane Blakemore asserts that the exercise in classification that has dominated discourse marker research should be replaced by the investigation of the way in which linguistic expressions contribute to the inferential processes involved in utterance understanding.
