3 CLAUSE AS EXCHANGE Types of speech role: GIVING [inviting to receive] Simultaneously with its organization as a message, the clause is also organized as an interactive event involving speaker/ writer, and audience.Types of speech role: GIVING [inviting to receive]DEMANDING [inviting to give]Thus an act of speaking might ppropriately be called AN INTERACT in which ”giving” implies receiving and “demanding” implies giving in response.
4 TWO VARIABLES DEFINING THE FOUR PRIMARY SPEECH FUNCTIONS OFFER, COMMAND, STATEMENT, QUESTION If you say something with the aim of getting someone to do something for you, the exchange commodity is strictly NON VERBAL.What is being demanded is an OBJECT or an ACTION, and language is brought in to help the process along.If you say something with the aim of getting someone to tell you something, what is being demanded is INFORMATIONINFORMATIONGOODS & SERVICES

8 M O O D E L E M E N T SMay be any nominal group.If it is a personal pronoun, it is simply repeated each time.If it is anything else, then after the first occurence it is replaced by the personal pronoun corresponding to it.One of a small number of verbal operators expressing TENSE or MODALITY.In some instances, the Finite element and the lexical verb are “fused” into a single word.This happens when the verb is in simple past or simple present (tense), active (voice), positive (polarity) and neutral (contrast).SUBJECTFINITE

15 The function of the Predicator is fourfold. It specifies: 1 The function of the Predicator is fourfold. It specifies: 1. time reference 2. various other aspects and phases like seeming, trying, hoping 3. the voice (active/ passive) 4. the process (action, event, material, mental, relation)PREDICATOR
16 A Complement is an element within the Residue that has the potential of being Subject but is not. It is typically realized by a nominal group. the duke gave my aunt that teapot Predicator Complement 1 Complement 2 Mood ResidueCOMPLEMENT
17 An Adjunct is an element that has not got the potential of being Subject. It is typically realized by an adverbial group or a prepositional phrase. e.g.: my aunt was given that teapot yesterday by the duke adverbial prepositional group phrase AdjunctADJUNCT
18 A Conjunctive Adjunct tends to occur at points in the clause which are significant for textual organization , which means at some boundary or other: 1. clause initial [part of the textual theme]: However, such men don’t make good husbands. 2. clause final [afterthought]: Such men don’t make good husbands, however. 3. between Theme and Rheme: Such men, however, don’t make good husbands. 4. between Mood and Residue: Such men don’t, however, make good husbands. Conjunctive Adjuncts have no function in the ckause as exchange.CONJUNCTIVE ADJUNCT
19 MODAL ADJUNCTSThere are 2 groups of Modal Adjuncts in terms of their place in the mood structure: 1. MOOD ADJUNCTS specifically relating to the finite verbal operators, expressing probability, usuality, obligation, inclination or time, and intensity. 2. COMMENT ADJUNCTS which tend to occur thematically, finally, between the Theme and Rheme, or between Mood and Residue; and when medial, they are typically associated with a boundary between information units.
20 They typically occur: a. next to the Finite. b. before the Finite. c They typically occur: a. next to the Finite. b. before the Finite. c. after the Finite. Examples: She probably hasn’t arrived. He doesn’t always hear. You certainly must go. I’d gladly help. She’s already arrived.MOOD ADJUNCTS
