I'm trying to find a single term for words that help maintain cohesion in a dialogue, such as:
A : How was the Lion King remake?
B : It was good.
A : And the Aladdin remake?
B : It was equally good.
A : And Toy Story 4?
B : That, however, was not so good...
I guess traditional grammar would class "equally" as adverb, and "however" as a conjunction, but their discourse function (to me) seems to be the same: To allow separate dialogue turns to remain cohesive.
Have you heard of a single term to label both in terms of dialogue/textual cohesion?
