Dutch language users can use connective patterns to express backward causal relations. Sub-omdat patterns (omdat, ‘because1’, followed by a subordinated clause) and co-want patterns (want, ‘because2/since/for’, followed by a coordinated clause) can be used in both spoken and written Dutch. However, only in spoken Dutch, a third pattern might be used: the co-omdat pattern. A possible parallel phenomenon occurs in German. We will describe the co-omdat pattern against the background of a comparison of this so called “epistemic weil” pattern and present a first study on the co-omdat phenomenon. We analyse the co-omdat pattern from two linguistic perspectives: cognitive text analysis and spoken discourse analysis. We argue that the congruency seen in the resulting two analyses of co-omdat can be taken as strong support for the acknowledgement of a co-omdat construction in spoken Dutch.
