Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the theoretical discussion on the pragmatic structure of clauses and its linguistic expression. The chapter introduces the functional-linguistic account of what these pragmatic functions are and of how they are typically expressed in language in general. It discusses the linguistic expressions of pragmatic functions in Biblical Hebrew. In this chapter, the author concedes that the (singly occupied) preverbal field is the position for locating either the strongest Focus or the Topic (the about what) of the clause, and for connecting the clause with what immediately preceded it.

Keywords: Hebrew; linguistic expression; pragmatic structure
