Diskursmarker in wissenschaftlichen Vorträgen
Abstract The Stuttgart-Tübingen-Tagset (STTS) has become the standard for Part-of-Speech-Tagging in German. Since it was created with written data in mind, categories such as modal particles, speech particles or discourse markers are lacking, all of which would be needed for an adequate analysis of spoken data. An adaptation of the STTS to include the category “discourse markers” will be discussed using examples from academic talks. We compare and contrast knowledge won from conversation analysis with qualitative and quantitative analyses of academic talks from the GeWiss corpus. It is then shown that discourse markers appear not only in dialogic spoken data, but also in monologic speech.
The word ja is chosen as an example to illustrate the broad range of uses for discourse markers. Criteria for the unique classification such as the context and the degree of spontaneity are considered. Moreover, academic talks from native German speakers (L1) and from speakers with German as a second language (L2) are compared regarding the use of discourse markers.
