The aim of this thesis is to confirm three different usage of `wae`(why) - wh-adverb, indefinite adverb, discourse marker - and to explore the functions of `wae` as a discourse marker. It has been insisted that `wae` is not used as a indefinite adverb, but I argued that `wae` can be used as a indefinite adverb in several dialects. In this thesis I demonstrated that discourse marker `wae` has developed from wh-adverb `wae` by grammaticalization. And I explored several functions of discourse marker `wae`. Among them the main function is evocation.
