"Erran nahi baita" birformulatzaile esplikatiboa gaurko euskaran

Xabier Alberdi


This article presents a detailed study of the present-day use of the Basque discourse marker erran/esan nahi baita ('that is to say'). This is an explanatory reformulator by means of which the speaker presents a reformulation of something said in the previous utterance (either a clause that forms part of the current sentence, or the preceding sentence) in order to express it more clearly or explain it. In the article I will examine the marker's values; literary tradition; form and origin; present-day variants; equivalent expressions; position; punctuation; syntax; frequency, medium (written or spoken), register and text type; equivalents in other languages; and discourse value.
