Abstract:
Argumentative discourse, as a goal oriented activity, would seek to induce in the Respondent a decision-making process leading to the identifi cation of a given proposition. The role played by certain discourse markers in this process is one of increasing processing efficiency. How they achieve this is by means of coded instructions (or constraints) levelled at various stages of the decision-making process.
