The Angle of Articulation in Textual Movement. Cognitive Science Research No. 60.
Natural systems are self-organizing and stratify according to the angular articulation of their movements. In particular, movement is relative to the levels that define its behavior space. As natural phenomenon, text production is self-referential, In generating information, the intention of the producer of a text becomes specified. Specifying of intention is dependent on phase and phase transitions. In agreement with realized phase values, spanning over 360 degrees, co-ordination and cooperation among parts is of significance. Joints and links are channelling textual elements. A mapping procedure is locating the discontinuities by keeping track of changes, flows, and rhythms. This is a more elastic and fluid strategy, compared to former approaches. The discontinuities are used in the description of states and state changes across the kinetic and kinematic levels of verbal flow fields. It is shown that novel properties have emerged along the adiabatic paths of the investigated text. This means that attractors of points and attractors of states have manifested informational structures that are more elaborated than the previous studies could show. Contains 15 references and 10 figures of data; an appendix contains a table of data. (Author/RS)
