Details

A dictionary of discourse markers from Alemany (2005). "In this lexicon, discourse markers are characterized by their structural (continuation or elaboration) and semantic (revision, cause, equality, context) meanings, and they are also associated to a morphosyntactic class (part of speech, PoS), one of adverbial (A), phrasal (P) or conjunctive (C)... Sometimes a discourse marker is underspecified with respect to a meaning. We encode this with a hash. This tends to happen with structural meanings, because these meanings can well be established by discursive mechanisms other than discourse markers, and the presence of the discourse marker just reinforces the relation, whichever it may be." (p. 191).
