PostSubject: Discourse marker   2nd September 2015, 11:14 pm

Discourse markers are words or phrases like anyway, right, okay, as I say, to begin with.
We use them to connect, organise and manage what we say to express attitude
Example
- by the way : when you want to change to another topic.
- well anyway : when you want to come back to topic incase go out the outline.
- like I say : when you want to emphasize the previous topic.
- yes, but : when you want to share difference idea.
- uh- huh : when you want to show your attention.

Usually,I use "by the way" when I change the topic like you said.
However , I have never use "well anyway" before.
So,Thank you for sharing, I will bring your technique to use in class and English Camp.
