Abstract: While discourse particles remain to be one of the most studied features of Colloquial Singapore English (CSE), discourse markers have yet to receive the same amount of attention. This paper focuses on somemore, a yet unaddressed discourse marker of CSE and aims to formalise the semantics of somemore. Using the QUD framework, I analyse the felicity conditions necessary for the use of somemore and the necessary constraints on its antecedent. I argue that somemore is a rhetorical device used to convince hearers to believe a point that the speaker is making by answering a QUD raised in conversation.
