Abstract [en]

This paper is a study of the functions of ten common expletive interjections in a 1 million-word sub-corpus from the spoken component of the BNC. The findings indicate that about a hundred interjections function as release mechanisms for mostly negative feelings triggered by real-world experiences. The rest are shown to be pragmatic markers as these have been defined in the recent literature and are analysed mainly in terms of the discourse-based analytic model used in Stenström (1994).
