Abstract:

Texture - the quality that makes a text 'hang together' as a text -  is a
key focus of investigation in discourse analysis. This volume provides a
systematic overview of recent research on textual resources that are used
to construct texture, and on the ways in which these resources are deployed
differently in different text types. Theme is the major resource that is
explored in the first part of the book. The opening papers set out the
current understanding of Theme and explore aspects of the concept which
remain controversial in the field. This is followed by an examination of
thematic choices in a range of text types. Issues raised include the
different kinds of meanings appearing in Theme which are particularly
significant for each genre, the ways in which these relate to the broader
socio-cultural context, and the ways in which thematic choices interact
with other kinds of texturing. In the second part of the collection, the
scope widens to include an examination of other resources, particularly the
contribution to texture made by patterns of interpersonal choices, in Theme
and more broadly across texts as a whole. The volume closes with an
overview and illustration of a methodological approach by which our
understanding of texturing can be further extended.
