The paper seeks to explore the pragmatic functions of the discourse marker yes in conflict talks of the English major’s group discussions. The research has found that the discourse marker yes has been used mainly to realize the pragmatic functions of affirmation and turn-taking. More attention should be attached to the pedagogical improvement in the teaching of English, especially in non-English majors’ reading and listening sections of the courses.
