In conversation, we often introduce a new topic or make a transition with a little introductory word, like "Well, …" or "So, …" in English or "Allora …" in Italian. For example, if previously we've talked about meeting somewhere, but that topic has been brushed aside for a while, I might bring it up like this:
So, where would you like to meet?
Well, where would you like to meet?
The little introductory word softens the transition to the new topic. Omitting it would make the sentence seem abrupt or officious. Even at the start of a conversation, these softeners are often appropriate.
How do you make the corresponding softening in conversational Latin? With autem or enim or some related word? Or does one not do this in Latin?
