Filipino scholars are taught diversified concepts on how they could enhance their writing to supply well-organized texts. particular writing units are had to support scholars formulate cohesive and coherent texts. a number of experiences have aimed toward examining those units, quite often termed as discourse markers (DMs), that have been regarded as “growth marketplace in linguistics” via Fraser (1998). DMs have been first dealt in a seminal paper by means of Halliday and Hassan (1976) once they analyzed textual content and puzzled: “What makes a textual content diversified from a random choice of unrelated sentences?”

Although the direct use of the time period DMs was once no longer pointed out, Halliday and Hasan, proposed a collection of cohesive units (reference, repetition, substitution, ellipsis, and conjunction) that “help create a textual content through indicating semantic family in an underlying constitution of ideas.” Fraser (2009) came across that a number of expressions are used to consult DMs together with cue words, discourse connectives, discourse markers, discourse operators, discourse debris, pragmatic expressions, and pragmatic markers.

DMs are linguistic goods equivalent to good, in spite of the fact that, so, simply because, and so on. which give a contribution to the cohesiveness, solidarity, and which means in discourse segments. Fraser (1990) supplied an account of DMs to elucidate their prestige and outlined DMs as “a classification of lexical expressions drawn basically from the syntactic periods of conjunctions, adverbs, and prepositional phrases.”

In examining DMs, bills have emerged to which researchers subscribe. the problem highlighted during this distinction is appeared to “how using DMs contributes to discourse interepretation”
