This collection contains five papers on discourse in a variety of languages. "A Stratificational Perspective on the Discourse Structure of Limos Kalinga" by Hartmut Wiens demonstrates the value of the stratificational model in looking at language in relatively small portions at various levels while also showing how its structural aspects at those levels can be integrated. "An Analysis of Polysemy in Kapampangan and Japanese, Using the Systems Correspondence Theory" by Anicia del Corro analyzes polysemy in a Philippine language and Japanese according to a theory stating that man uses existing systems in his world to identify, label, and comprehend the world. In "Some Functions of Direct Quotes in Tagabawa Narrative Discourse," by Sherri Brainard and Lauretta DuBois, four functions are found for this structure. "The Functions of 'hay' in Aklanon Narrative Discourse" by Sherri Brainard and Poul Jensen discusses the kinds of grammatical constructions in which this particle occur, where it is found in a text, what information is contained in it, and what functions such constructions perform. The final paper, "Sentence Types in Eastern Kadazan" by Hope M. Hurlbut, provides a description of the grammatical sentence in this Dusunic language using the tagmemic model. (MSE)
