Abstract

In this work we intend to analyse, mainly from a pragmatic approach, real examples obtained from the Corpus del español in order to determine with scientific value the features which characterize in context the discourse marker para empezar. Our intention is to identify if there is a frequent use of this marker as a structurer of the elements in enunciation, or if it is, on the contrary, a marker used mostly as a modal particle that expresses the attitude of the speaker. If so, we also seek to recognize which are its specific uses.
