Abstract: The paper focuses on the Discourse marker (DM) ?/orh/? in spoken Singapore Mandarin using first hand data. To date, there are various efforts put in researching DMs within spoken Singapore English. However, very few have touched on Singapore Mandarin, and none about ?/orh/? in particular. It was shown that ?/orh/? has a total of 5 main functions. Each function serves very important roles, and if taken out from the sentence, that sentence will be denied of all discourse and pragmatic implications the DM brought. It is interesting to note that while ?/orh/? can serve to mitigate face-threatening acts, it can also initiate a face-threatening act. The study aims to fill up some extent of this research gap by providing a clear picture of how ?/orh/? is used by Singaporean Chinese, the functions it have, and its links with politeness and face issues.
