Discourse-Semantic Approach to Cohesion (Martin & Rose, 2007)

Ideation: Lexical Cohesion


  • semantics of lexical relations as employed to construe institutional activity. Ways in which taxonomic relations organize the field of discourse: lexical relations and collocation (nuclear relation: elaboration, extension, enhancement). -> experiential meaning


Identification - Grammatical Reference


  • resources for tracking participants in discourse. -> textual meaning


Conjunction


  • resources for connecting messages, via addition, comparison, temporality, causality. Internal (pragmatic/rhetorical) and external (semantic/propositional) relations. -> logical meaning
