Linking Ideas with AND in Spoken and Written Discourse.
Lazaraton, Anne
IRAL, v30 n3 p191-206 Aug 1992
A contextual analysis approach was used to explore the semantic, syntactic, and discourse properties of the conjunction "and." Results are discussed in terms of phrasal coordination, and it is shown that "and" occurs with a high frequency in the spoken/written comparison narrative texts examined, with a density of 26.4 to 66.3 tokens per 1,000 words.
