Speaking of discourse markers, I was watching TV the other day and this =
American on TV habitually kept on using "y'know" here and there in a =
sentence. That made me wonder, what purpose does this repeated use of =
"y'know" have? Is it some kind of particle or marker? Any conlangs with =
such a marker?
