Abstract

This paper discusses the use of the Spanish expression <i>en plan </i>as a pragmatic marker, more specifically as a hedge in Madrid boys’ and girls’ spontaneous conversation, when used as a politeness device to save both the speaker’s and the hearer’s face. This function is the most frequent one in the material studied in this paper, which emerges from <i>Corpus Oral de Lenguaje Adolescente de Madrid </i>(COLAm) The differences between boys and girls uses are also analysed, as well as the distribution among social classes.
