Fictional representations of �new� pragmatic markers and quotatives in Irish English
The way the complexities of fictional dialogue are creatively exploited in a play, a film or a novel can reveal much about the management of ordinary conversation. Although it is evident that fictional dialogue and naturally occurring conversation are different types of communication, it is no less true that fictional representations of dialogue and narratives creatively exploit linguistic features which may be characteristic of spoken language. This chapter discusses how discourse markers such as like and roysh, and quotative patterns such as be + like, go, and be + there are employed in the work of Irish author Paul Howard in order to recreate contemporary Dublin English.
