Abstract

This article analyses the function of the multiword lexeme as used in Internet forums. We defend the notion that is a highly polyphonic discourse marker. Its function is evidential as of the moment in which the speaker uses this unit to present a subjective appraisal as a logical truth within the framework of an assertion. We therefore focus on evidentiality from not only a lexical but also a textual-discursive standpoint. Internet forums are the ideal type of text for studying a unit like , which is typically used in colloquial language.
