    2. Discourse markers are, according to Wikipedia, words that are used to add flow to a sentence. In English, the flow of a sentence is important. We put stress on different words, and don't say everything in monotone. I'll read something from a book. Don't focus on what I'm saying, but my tone and how I'm saying it. In sentences, you need to break ideas up. Discourse markers are used to do this. Consider this exchange between friends. A: John, did you get the cake for the birthday party? B: Well....No I didn't. I'm sorry. A: So, you're saying there's no cake? What are the discourse markers? "Well" and "So". Person B tries to ease into his idea by adding "Well" first because he knows that him not buying a cake will disappoint person A. Person A uses the time between when he says "So" and the next word to collect his thoughts. I hope that helped a bit to explain what they are.
