ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to observe and analyze the syntactic characteristics and the pragmatic functions of discourse markers ‘wa(와), we(웨), ing(잉)’ of the Jeonnam dialect found in Cho Jeong-Rae's novel, <Taebaeksanmaek>. In this study, I argue that these three discourse markers exhibit certain pragmatic functions by means of connecting ending markers of sentences at the end of a speech as a whole. I also find that there are syntactic and pragmatic differences among these discourse markers. First of all, ‘wa(와)’ is connected with ending markers representing the lowest honorific level and functions as a discourse marker ascertaining and emphasizing the truth of a speaker's words. Another discourse marker ‘we(웨)’ is used along with ending markers representing the lower honorific level and functions as a discourse marker implying a speaker's negative attitude and regret for the most part. Finally, ‘ing(잉)’ is free from restraints of honorific level and mood, and functions as a discourse marker emphasizing the speaker's claim and expressing the speaker's close friendship with a listener.
