Summary

This is a cross-linguistic exploration of the use of clause linkage markers in causal, conditional, and concessive sentences. Employing a five-level classification of clause linkage based on semantic and pragmatic grounds, it shows that, within individual languages different&#12288markers&#12288exhibit&#12288different distributions on the five levels. Also, the rich evidence presented from seventeen languages from many parts of the world documents that these distributions present&#12288commonalities&#12288as well as differences&#12288across the languages of the sample.
