The LINGUIST List depends on the generous contributions from
subscribers like you; we would not be able to operate without your
help.

The moderators, staff, and student editors at LINGUIST would like to
take this opportunity to thank you for your continuous support.

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject:  query:  discourse-initial 'and'

Can anyone suggest bibliography treating discourse-initial use of
'and', whether in poetry or in ordinary conversation?  It appears to
suggest a tie to something assumed to be knopwn by both speaker and
hearer.  Does this come under echoic utterances, or
metarepresentation?  Or...?

Thanks.  I'll post a summary if replies warrant it.

Dear all,

One of my students is looking for references (especially in English
and French) on linguistics and newspaper information. She would like
to demonstrate how language is / can be used to convey a particular
piece of news, and how language is used to manipulate news and
information.

Thank you for any references
I'll post a summary

Best
