A multimodal investigation into the use of Discourse Markers in supervision sessions: The case of Arabic doctoral students
The main aim of my research is to explore the multimodal usage of English Discourse Markers (DMs) by Arabic speakers in the context of doctoral supervision sessions. The study also seeks to disambiguate how Arabic doctoral students (as compared to English doctoral students) use these markers and their co-verbal gestures in the management of talk-in-interaction. A third goal is to shed some light on the particular aspect of context-DMs use relationship within doctoral supervisions and to identify how context might influence and control the multimodal usage of DMs.
