Dynamic Evolution of the Type of “meideshuo” Discourse Marker and Its Metapragmatic Functions
Keywords:A type of “meideshuo” discourse marker, lexicalization, grammaticalization, intersubjectification, dynamic evolution,
A type of “meideshuo” discourse markers
contains three subtypes: “meideshuo”,
“meihuashuo”, and “meishuode”. From the
point of view of semantic-pragmatics, this type
of discourse markers evolves dynamically from
the meaning of “no words to say” to “positive
meaning”, and finally evolves to a discourse
marker. The metapragmatic functions of the
discourse markers are new information focused,
proposition affirmed, and communicative
purpose predicted. The process of the discourse
marker evolution is not only the process of
lexicalization and grammaticalization, but also
the process of intersubjectification. The
pragmatic extensions and semantic entailment
are contributed to function as motivations for
the dynamic evolution of “meideshuo”
