Structuring cues of conjunctive yet, but, and still
A monosemic approach
This study examines over 400 tokens of conjunctive yet, but, and still to confirm predictions tied to a unique structuring cue or meaning posited for each form (Crupi 2004). The research is conducted within a Columbia School sign-based linguistic framework; however, unlike forms typically examined in CS analyses, yet, but, and still do not comprise a closed grammatical system. Rather the three are independent linguistic units that share the common communicative function of adversative conjunction. By examining the flow of information through a text, this research indicates that conjunctive yet, but, and still contribute unique and consistent clues about overall textual structure.
