This paper defines the utterance-type which is the abstraction from the concrete utterance-tokens, and it discusses some questions of relevance and discourse coherence, concentrating on four cognitive primitives, combinations of which characterize coherence relations between utterance-tokens of discourses. The paper concretely investigates the role of two pragmatic connectives (hát ‘well, so (after all)’, mert ‘because’) in Hungarian spoken discourses.
