GARCIA, Carlos  and  ORTIZ, Adriana. Voseo conversational markers in medellín coloquial speaking. Logos [online]. 2018, vol.28, n.1, pp.12-29. ISSN 0716-7520.

Discourse markers such as ¿entendés?, imaginate, mirá, and ¿sabés qué? are used in coloquial speech by Medellín people to achieved different communicative goals. This paper first of all, aims at showing some examples taken from oral sources: recordings and interviews from PRESEEA-Medellín project used with a specific pronoun: vos, that is typical use in the area of study; on the other hand, analyzes their pragmatic roles on each context as a way to describe dialectal uses.

Keywords : Pragmatic Function; Colloquial Speaking; Conversational Markers; Medellín´s Spanish; Voseo.
