Situational structure of discourse; frame; discourse representation
Neophilologica, T. 23 (2011), s. 259-272
In this paper the author analyzes situational structures of discourse which are defined as a sequence
of experiential frames (E. G of f m a n, 1991). Each frame makes it possible to conceptualize
one event as forming a part of information introduced in discourse. Analyzing the possible relations
between frames in discourse, the author aims to indicate their role in discourse comprehension —
a process which implicates creation of discourse representation.
