Overview

  • examines 17 languages from around the world.
  • investigates the use of clause linkage markers in terms of five levels in clause linkage, regarding causals, conditionals and concessives

Aims and Scope

This is a cross-linguistic exploration of the use of clause linkage markers in causal, conditional, and concessive sentences. Employing a five-level classification of clause linkage based on semantic and pragmatic grounds, it shows that, within individual languages different markers exhibit different distributions on the five levels. Also, the rich evidence presented from seventeen languages from many parts of the world documents that these distributions present commonalities as well as differences across the languages of the sample.
