Identity Relations and Superthemes in Swedish LSP Texts.
Naslund, Harry
This paper addresses the microsemantic and macrothematic analyses of science and popular science texts from the fields of economics, medicine, and technology used in the "LSP [Languages for Specific Purposes] Texts in the 20th Century" project. Results show that the frequency of the relations is different within various parts of the texts. A clear difference between the (pure) identity and the partial identity relations is that the former are the most frequent in theme development, whereas the latter have their highest frequency in the discussion part of several of the text groups. Distribution of possessive relationships indicates that the personal element of the medical texts is concentrated within the introduction and discussion, whereas the various diseases are dealt with in the central theme development.
