Abstract

Causahty is one of the most basic aspects of the way hutnans conceive cohelence in the world they inhabit, m then expenences, and m then lelationships with othei people In language and language use the hnguistic markmg of cau sality plays an impoi tant role This study focuses on Dutch hnguistic maikeis of causahty of two diffeient types, which aie manifest at two different levels of the hnguistic structuie the causal connectives daardoor ('äs a resulf) and daarom ('that's why'), and the causal veibs doen ('make') and laten ('have, make') So fai, these causal maikei s are typically studied m Isolation Hei e, the study of the mteiclausal (connectives) and the müa-clausal level maikeis of causahty (causal verbs) is integrated, the central idea being that distinctions between diffeient types of causahty are hkely to conespond across levels of language structure
