Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes the pragmatic structure of the clauses that make up Job's third reply (12-14), the pragmatic structure being the distribution of the functions of Topic and Focus in the clause. It presents the terminology that is used to describe this pragmatic structure. The chapter provides an outline of the objectives of the analysis. It clarifies the syntactic analysis that provides the materials for the pragmatic study. The author consistingly opts for the terminology developed by Simon Dik because it presents a unified account allowing for descriptive detail and because it is broadly accepted in general-linguistic circles. The function of Focus can be subcategorized not only on the basis of its scope, but also on the basis of its communicative point.

Keywords: Job; linguistic expressions; Simon Dik; syntactic analysis
