Themes play a central role in our everyday communication: we have to
know what a text is about in order to understand it. Intended meaning
cannot be understood without some knowledge of the underlying
theme. This book helps to define the concept of 'themes' in texts and
how they are structured in language use.

Much of the literature on Thematics is scattered over different
disciplines (literature, psychology, linguistics, cognitive science),
which this detailed collection pulls together in one coherent
overview. The result is a new landmark for the study and understanding
of themes in their everyday manifestation.

Lingfield(s): Cognitive Science
