For over 400 years, dramatists, novelists, and other writers seeking to depict Irish
characters have relied in part on words and phrases taken to be indexical of Irishness
when representing the conversational functions now associated with the term
'discourse marker'. In keeping with the general trend in the lexical development of
Irish English, many of the terms which are commonly cited are etymologically
derived from Irish and carry over similar discourse functions.
