Main Worlds and Supplements. An Attempt at Using a Qualitative Approach to Quantitative Data.
Melander, Bjorn
One of the analyses carried out within the University of Uppsala (Sweden) study, "LSP Texts in the 20th Century," classified the cognitive text content into five different cognitive worlds: the scientific, the practical, the object, the private, and the external. This paper investigated patterns of distribution in the texts of these cognitive worlds. A classification of the function in the textual structure of the cognitive worlds results in four different types: main world, secondary world, excursus, and supplement. This model makes it possible to describe content patterns at a macrolevel and also to correlate these patterns to various contextual factors, thereby making it possible to relate text and context.
