Li Huanhuan, Kim Youngjoo. 2012. A study on the topic level discourse markers in academic oral presentation by Chinese learners of Korean. Korean Semantics, 39. This study aimed to examine the use of topic level discourse markers in academic oral presentation by Korean native speakers and Chinese intermediate and advanced Korean learners in real classroom, and to compare the differences between two groups. In order to analyze the use of topic level discourse markers pattern, the pattern was categorized into 4 types: introducing topics, specifying the following contents of topics, deepening topics, turning topics. The characteristics between two groups in the use of topic level discourse markers are summarized as following. First, Korean native speakers used more often topic level discourse markers than Chinese learners. Second, Korean native speakers focused on using topic level discourse markers to make their presentation more comprehensible to audience. Third, Korean native speakers used more various discourse markers. Consequently, Chinese learners were poor at using topic level discourse markers. Therefore, this study claimed that topic level discourse markers are needed to be instructed for better academic oral presentation skills of Chinese learners.
