Contrast in Discourse: Guest Editors' Introduction

Journal of Semantics 21 (2):87-93 (2004)
Abstract
Contrast is a discourse relation that involves a comparison between two situations that are similar in one way, but different in another. In this special issue on the relation of Contrast in discourse the following questions are explored. How is Contrast marked (by the speaker) and how is it identified (by the hearer)? What is the discourse function of establishing Contrast? How do we account for the similarities as well as the differences between different types of linguistic tools and what cross‐linguistic variation do we find? The present article serves as a brief introduction to the studies presented in this special issue on Contrast
