A concise description of the multiple functions performed by each variable in the BwE data precedes the quantitative analysis which tests the combined impact on the observed variation of multiple contextual factors. In the discussion section, the findings obtained from the quantitative analysis are compared with those obtained in related studies, and the mechanisms giving rise to the variable’s synchronic Chapter 1. Introduction distribution patterns are examined. This is necessary to understand the nature and origin of the formal and functional variation in the data, and to appreciate the complex mechanisms underlying discourse-pragmatic variability which are explored further in Part III.
