A Framework for Discourse Analysis
The purpose of this chapter is to make explicit some background assumptions which have been implicit in the previous chapters, by presenting tagmemics as a framework for discourse analysis. Central to this presentation is an exposition of the notion of grammatical hierarchy, i. e., the belief that the grammatical constituents of a language are hierarchically ordered from discourse, paragraph, and sentence down through lower levels of the morphosyntax.
