Ma(r)king Concessions in English and German.
Grote, Brigitte; Lenke, Nils; Stede, Manfred
Discourse Processes, v24 n1 p87-118 1997
Concentrates on one area of discourse relations, the concession family, identifying its underlying semantics and pragmatics. Proposes (on the basis of extensive corpus studies) a new classification of concession markers in English and German. Suggests a generation model for producing bilingual text that can incorporate marker choice into its overall decision framework. (SR)
