An adequate semantic description of German connectors has been lacking to date. This handbook provides a comprehensive description of the meanings of sentence connectors and their systemic linkages. The work is relevant for composing and understanding texts, as well as for a number of subfields in linguistics. Furthermore, it has practical applications in German language instruction, German as a foreign language, and computer linguistics.
