identification of structural units in discourse, dialogical sequences, analysis
of rhetorical segments (moves, steps) in different sorts of discourse, routine,
creativity, etc.)

competence, development of discourse competence, testing and evaluation of
discourse competence, etc.)
- analysis of structure and organisation of discourse from a corpuslinguistic

Corpus approaches to investigating lexical, grammatical and stylistic
