While approaching her data from a pragmatic and discourse-analytic perspective, the author focuses on the pragmatic marker I mean and illustrates how this marker can enhance the negotiation of meaning in spoken interaction and the establishment of discourse coherence. Using both quantitative and qualitative methods, she offers results from her own research into authentic material representing academic spoken discourse.
