Summary or Abstract : The theoretical framework of this study embraces a functionally- based account and is grounded on Schiffrin s (1987) notion of - multidimensional model of coherence. It classifies ten discourse markers (so, yeah, right, Ok, you know, well, because, I think, I mean, actually) according to Maschler s (1994) functional paradigm of discourse markers. This study explores the profile of occurrence of these elements in Iranian TEFL students spontaneous speech and contrasts it with the profile of occurrence of the same markers in the spontaneous speech of English native speakers. It also examines the effect of sex on the use of discourse markers in each group (thirty Iranian TEFL learners and thirty English native speakers), and Iranian TEFL students awareness of the pragmatic functions of discourse markers in their speech. The analysis shows the following results: There are differences in the use of discourse markers between two groups; Iranian TEFL students tend to use discourse markers more than native speakers of English; among Iranian TEFL males and females, some discourse markers were produced more in males speech and some other discourse markers were more frequent in females speech; native male and female speakers have made almost the same use of all discourse markers; and finally, it is shown that although Iranian TEFL students have almost the same awareness of the pragmatic functions of discourse markers in their speech as native speakers of English have, since they are overgeneralizing the use of discourse markers in their speech, they may not have acquired the "pragmatics of discourse marker use" as natives peakers have and they sound non native. This study suggests a need to strengthen TEFL students pragmatic competence in spoken language..
