Book Information


Title: Kommunikationsreihen aus Gespr├Ąchen und Textkommunikaten [Communication Series from Conversations and Text Communication]
Subtitle: Zur Kommunikation in und zwischen Gesellschaften
Written By: Sigurd Wichter
Series Title: De Gruyter Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 294

The theory of communication series is suggested as an alternative to discourse
linguistics because it focuses not only on mass communications with reference
to a thematic context, but examines every social communication including
interpersonal communication between two persons or within a small group. Each
element of communication is subject to three areas of level: (1) speech act and
speech act sequences; (2) communication (conversations, text-based
communication); (3) series as purpose-constituted consequences of
communication. Series can be recursively embedded, extending as far as
society-related and international series. Series are diachronic quantities with
evolutionary levels.
