Abstract

This chapter analyses the lexical item ouèche in its current usage as a discourse marker. It presents a qualitative analysis of the particle's funtion in the speech of multi-ethnic urban youth peer groups. Ouèche is a very well known, widespread, but understudied particle, particularly in its current usage as an interpersonal pragmatic marker.
