Abstract:

Everyday language use overflows with discourse-pragmatic features. Their
frequency, form and function can vary greatly across social groups and change
dramatically over time. And yet these features have not figured prominently in
studies of language variation and change. The Structure of Discourse-Pragmatic
Variation demonstrates the theoretical insights that can be gained into both
the structure of synchronic language variation and the interactional
mechanisms creating it by subjecting discourse-pragmatic features to
systematic variationist analysis. Introducing an innovative methodology that
combines principles of variationist linguistics, grammaticalisation studies
and conversation analysis, it explores patterns of variation in the formal
encoding of I DON’T KNOW, I DON’T THINK and negative polarity tags in a
north-east England interview corpus. Speakers strategically exploit the formal
variability of these constructions to signal subtle meaning differences and to
index social identities closely linked to the variables’ and their variants’
functional compartmentalisation in the variety. The methodology, results and
implications of this study will be of great interest to scholars working
throughout variationist sociolinguistics, grammaticalisation and discourse
analysis
