Abstract:

This volume sign posts several paths of multimodality research and
theory-building today. The chapters represent a cross-section of current
perspectives on multimodal discourse with a special focus on theoretical
and methodological issues (mode hierarchies, modelling semiotic resources
as multiple semiotic systems, multimodal corpus annotation). In addition,
it discusses a wide range of applications for multimodal description in
fields like mathematics, entertainment, education, museum design, medicine
and translation.
