An example of the modal particle maar related to a mental act is given in (6).  The alternative would be not taking the decision.  Zeevat (2002) analyzes (discourse) particles as presupposition triggers. A sentence A presupposes sentence B if the speaker of A automatically commits herself to the truth of B. This is, however, not a conclusive definition of presupposition. It is sometimes argued that there is no single notion of presupposition but instead there is a set of items and constructions which have similar characteristics which need explanation (Beaver, 1997).

The markers are necessary for if the relations remained unmarked, misinterpretations would result. The relations for which Zeevat assumes such marking principles are the following: ‐ Old: the content is already suggested in the common ground. ‐ Adversativity: the content has been suggested to be false in the context. ‐ Correction: the content was denied in the common ground. ‐ Additive: the topic has been addressed before but the content gives an expansion of the earlier answer. ‐ Replacing additive: the topic has been addressed before, but this contribution needs to be replaced.

In the Spoken Dutch Corpus it takes the twentieth position in the frequency list containing all words.  Here, I am not interested in wel having the meaning ‘good’ 23 CHAPTER 3 because outside expressions such as the above, the use of wel meaning ‘good’ has become archaic and very rare in Dutch.  It has a set of different meanings or uses that are related to each other2.  I will make this common feature explicit by analyzing the different uses in Layered Discourse Representation Theory (Geurts and Maier 2003).
