Semantic Options in the Transitivity System: An Example of Textual Analysis.
Lavid, Julia
This article aims to discover the latent organization of a text by revealing a semantically motivated pattern of language functions that inform the theme of a story. it is shown how this pattern of linguistic features in the text provides insights into the literary effects of a description of a scene of a novel. The analysis proposed follows the systemic-functional framework, with an emphasis on the manner in which the processes and the participants in process are represented in the text. In other words, the focus of the analysis is the ideational component of the grammar, the grammar of transitivity. (Contains 3 references.) (JL)
