de Rooij, Vincent A.
International Journal of Bilingualism, v4 n4 p447-67 Dec 2000
Examines data recorded in Shaba, a province in the Congo, and documents the marked preference to employ French discourse markers in Shaba Swahili discourse. Treats discourse markers as a special kind of contextualization cue that ties parts of a discourse to each other, creating cohesion and coherence. (Author/VWL)
