This book investigates phenomena at the grammar–discourse interface with a strong focus on discourse markers, whose development and concrete uses in a given language tend to be based on a close interplay of grammatical and discourse-related forces. The topics range from the transition of linguistic signs “out of” sentence grammar and “into” the domain of discourse to differences between more grammatical vs. more discourse-pragmatic expressions in terms of structural behavior and cognitive processing, and the different, intricate ways in which the usage conditions and meanings of grammatical constituents or structural units are affected by the discourse context in which they are used. The twelve studies in this book are based on fresh empirical data from languages such as English, Basque, Korean, Japanese and French and involve the study of linguistic expressions and structures such as pragmatic markers and particles, comment clauses, expletives, adverbial connectors, and expressives.

Life is a paradise filled with love, hope, and the promise of forever in Johnny’s arms. But life has different plans for her heart and her future. Driven apart by circumstances and teenage pride, she marries Michael, the new love of her life at seventeen. Inspired by the hopeful new dreams of a new bride, she looks forward to forever at Michael’s side. How quickly life can change. Due to a devastating car accident shortly after the wedding, Lisa now lingers in a nonresponsive vegetative state in a hospital bed. No one knows that within her motionless body, her mind still races in fear and pain, in love and longing, and between hope and hopelessness. Five years later, there is little reason for optimism. Lisa’s devoted husband, faced with his greatest, heartbreaking life challenge, ponders an impossible choice: Is it time to let her go? Trapped alone in the darkness, Lisa has only her memories for company. Johnny is never far from her heart, even as her husband is ironically never far from her side. Michael struggles with his own demons, doubts, and needs. His friend Annette refuses to be the reason to end his marriage, despite its current state. Life, as the grieving husband has come to learn, is complicated. Will heartbreak drive him to a decision he will forever regret? Only time will tell.

The perfect coming-of-age romance by the most spectacularly funny and original debut voice. My name is Ellie. Ellie Pillai . . . And I suppose I am a little bit weird, but then, aren't we all, just a little bit? Most days, Ellie Pillai is somewhere between invisible, and not very cool - and usually she's okay with that. But suddenly, Ellie feels different. Maybe it's the new boy at school who makes her brain explode into rainbows every time she sees him (and also happens to be going out with her best friend), or maybe it's her new drama teacher, the one who seems to have noticed she exists. Suddenly, her misfit style, her skin colour, her songwriting and all that getting lost in the music in her head seem to be okay too. Because maybe standing out isn't a bad thing after all.
