Final thoughts book
Text analysis has been used as a way of introducing the approach to those who are not familiar with it, but it has also been used extensively for the description of languages, language teaching, pathological linguistics, forensic linguistics, translation studies, and computational linguistics. This chapter explores how the meaning of the clause has three strata: ideational to express our representation of the world, interpersonal to express our relationship with our message and those with whom we are communicating, and textual to enable to construct our message. It describes how grammatical metaphor can be used to mould the text, and we have seen how Appraisal can be used to bring out the subjective elements in a text.
