Table of contents

However, it should be noted that this does not exhaust the possibilities of the three metafunctions. For example, transitivity could be paralleled by an analysis of the ergative structure in terms of Agent, Process and Medium Halliday ; Thompson Modality, in all its forms, constitutes a significant element of the interpersonal metafunction.

And the textual metafunction in addition to thematic structure, includes, for example, information structure analysed in terms of Given and New or, as I prefer to say, Focalized, the problem with the term New being that many examples of New are not at all new in the ordinary sense of the word; hence as a technical term, New is opaque and confusing for students , and cohesion. The complete analysis of the physics text can be found in Appendix 2, and that of the ESP text in Appendix 3.

The clauses of the physics abstract are numbered P1, P2, P3, etc. This is accompanied by two circumstantial adjuncts, one of place, from partially caesiated W surfaces , and one expressing instrumental involvement, under grazing incidence.

The Mood element is made up of the subject group and the Finite, are , the remainder of the clause being the Residue. In thematic structure, major components of the clause Subject, Predicator, Complement or circumstantial Adjunct constitute topical themes when in thematic position.

In this case the Subject is the topical Theme, the rest of the clause is the Rheme. The collision-induced emission of electrons due to inter- and intra-atomic Auger processes is studied. The verbal group is again in the passive voice and hence it is usual to find, as here, the content of the mental process, the Phenomenon, The collision-induced emission of electrons due to inter- and intra-atomic Auger processes , in subject position. The Mood is the Subject plus the Finite, is, with studied as the Residue. The Subject is the topical Theme, and the rest of the clause, is studied , functions as Rheme.

The verbal group of this clause has no auxiliaries, and in this case SFL posits that the Finite is fused with the lexical verb. Hence the Mood is made up of the Subject and the fused Finite which is in the verb.

The remainder of the clause constitutes the Residue. Once again it is the Subject which constitutes the topical Theme, the rest of the clause being the Rheme. P4 has a verbal group, is formed , which is a Material Process. Here, the Subject of this material process is a Result rather than an Affected, since it is created by the process. It is also accompanied by a circumstantial Adjunct of manner, in a two-step capture process. The Mood is once again the Subject plus Finite, with the remainder of the clause constituting the Residue. The totality of this clause forms part of the Rheme of P3.

Nevertheless it is possible to consider the internal thematic structure of this rankshifted clause. In that case the conjunction, that, since it precedes the topical Theme forms part of the thematic material, and is a textual Theme; this is followed by the topical Theme, constituted by the Subject, the rest of the clause functioning as Rheme.

This paper analyses lexical verb use in two types of medical research articles clinical and. The process here is however not about the process of analysing itself, but about the presentation of the analyses in the article; hence it is a question of communication and an example of Verbal Process. A Sayer is the initiator of an act of communication, and as such must be an animate entity, hence in this case, the Subject, This paper , cannot be a Sayer, except in some metaphorical sense; it is rather the means through which the unmentioned sayer, the researcher, carries out his act of communication.

This paper is therefore analysed as Instrument. The segment lexical verb use in two types of medical research articles clinical and experimental expresses the content of the message and thus is the Verbiage. The Subject is also the topical Theme, with the rest of the clause as Rheme. Once again the Mood element is the Subject and a fused Finite, with the rest of the clause as Residue; and the Subject also functions as topical Theme with the rest of the clause as Rheme.

Finite and non-finite forms of verbs recurring at a frequency of over 4 per 10, words were included. The notion of inclusion constitutes a metaphorical form of possession. However since the verb include can be passivized, it is possible, as here, to have only the Possessed expressed, in subject position. This Subject, Finite and non-finite forms of verbs occurring at a frequency of over 4 per 10, words, together with the Finite, were , constitute the Mood element, with what is left, included , as Residue.

The Subject again functions as topical Theme, and the rest of the clause as Rheme. Lists were drawn up of verbs meeting this criterion in both groups and in one group only. The subject group is discontinuous, with of verbs meeting this criterion in both groups and in one group only , functioning as the qualifier of Lists. The whole of this therefore constitutes the Subject, and since it expresses the content of the message it is analysed as Verbiage in the transitivity analysis.

The whole of this Subject together with the Finite, were, constitute the Mood element, leaving drawn up as the Residue. Since initial position is crucial to the status of Theme, only that part of the Subject in initial position, Lists , functions as Theme, with the rest of the clause as Rheme. My comments are based on the full analyses to be found in Appendices 2 and 3. This is what one would expect in this type of text, where interrogatives or imperatives would be highly unusual.

However there are some minor details that might be noticed. The physics abstract uses only one fused finite in a verbal process; the ESP abstract uses 4, 2 verbal and 2 relational. Hence it is the physics text which makes more use of the resources of English, notably in the area of the system of voice.

It might be hypothesized that the greater use of fused finites in the ESP article means that it is more notional and generic than the physics text. The ESP abstract has no modal finites. It may be of significance that the two modal finites of the physics text occur in the only relational processes of that text, while the ESP text has twice as many relational processes but no modal finites.

However it might be noted that the physics text has two marked themes i. All three of these marked themes are circumstantial adjuncts. Halliday argues that themes of this type have a scene-setting function. All of the verbal groups in question are encoded in the passive voice, and consequently the Affected appears in subject position in these cases.

These Affected express the physical entities under study. In comparison, the ESP text has no material processes at all.

Here it is the relational processes, of which there are 4 out of 9 which dominate. This expresses the way things are within the texts under study in the ESP article, by simply stating relationships between entities or giving their properties.. There are 3 of the former and 2 of the latter. Some commentators see a close connection between these two types, or even see verbal process as a sub-group of mental process Berry , Matthiessen Consideration of the verbal processes in the ESP text shows that 2 out of 3 have an Instrument in subject position.

The Sayer is not expressed in any of them. The physics text has only one verbal and one mental process. The clause with verbal process does have an expressed Sayer, and moreover this is encoded as the personal pronoun We in subject position.

All pronouns are part of the contextual component because they require knowledge of an earlier antecedent.
