For the past two decades, Carstens's framework of Afrikaans conjunction markers has been used as the standard classification for measuring the use of conjunction markers. His classification of compromise can be viewed as the work of a pioneer due to the combining of Halliday and Hasan's (1976) four main categories of conjunction markers with the subcategories of classifications of other researchers. In this process, he linked the use of Afrikaans conjunction markers for the first time to a framework, which has already received international stature within the literature with regard to the use of conjunction markers. Halliday and Hasan (1976:235) highlights the fact that there exists a shortcoming concerning a uniform inventory for the use of conjunction markers in English, because the function(s) of a particular conjunction marker -recorded into this classification -is dependent on the contexts in which the conjunction marker is used. Moreover, these contexts are not always clearly indicated. The same principle holds true for Afrikaans and other languages.
