Chapter Summary

In this chapter, grammatical cues will be analyzed which-to use Givón's words-roughly guide the reader to a coherent reconstruction of the text's meaning. The present analysis is not so much interested in the concrete content of the information communicated in the text, as it is interested in the way in which the text makes clear how this information is structured. This analysis is executed at two levels. On the one hand, the pragmatic structure of each clause in Job 12-14 is analyzed. On the other hand, attention is paid to the structure of the text as a whole and to the question of which clauses belong together in informational units.

Keywords: Job 12-14; pragmatic structure
