Abstract:

Discourse markers and modal particles are fuzzy linguistic categories that are
difficult to describe. The contributions in this volume go beyond this
statement. They discuss the intersection between modal particles and discourse
markers and examine whether or not it is possible to draw a line between these
two types of linguistic expressions. On the basis of new synchronic and
diachronic data, from speech and writing, from European and Asian languages or
cross-linguistically, the authors answer the question whether discourse
markers and modal particles are distinct categories, whether they form a
cline, or whether modal particles are a subcategory of discourse markers. This
common question shows up throughout all chapters, which makes the book to a
coherent whole. By disentangling the complexity of categorizing
multifunctional expressions, this book also sheds new light on the processes
of meaning extension. The traditional discourse and modal functions are
complemented by interactional and textual ones. A must read for functional
linguists.
