Abstract:

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.
