LEXICON REFERENCING AND TEXT-PRAGMATIC ANALYSIS: CONCEPTS AND APPLICATIONS

This research seeks to study the functional relationship between the lexical units and what the hypotheses of textual linguistics and pragmatics put forward, and this is what required us to address the functional achievement achieved by words in terms of functions and values within texts according to relationships based on meaning, referral and intent. In order to reach an actual explanatory competence that guarantees accurate knowledge of how the lexicon works, this calls for research into the functional support relationships between levels of grammar, and semantics, and deliberation in building and interpreting the rules of text formation and discourses at the linguistic and pragmatic levels. This is on the grounds that the structural and semantic properties formed the core of the textual research, and therefore the textual research is carried out on the levels: grammar, semantics and circulation and it is not permissible to separate them. And the research on the relations of methodological compatibility and functional integration between the lexicon, text, and circulation, is usually related to the study of the textual-pragmatic functionalism accomplished by lexical units within texts, according to the processes of linking and cohesion between the constituent units of the text and the conversational processes performed between interlocutors in certain contextual conditions. Accordingly, the treatment of the established relationship between the lexicon, the text and the circulation remains determined mainly by clarifying the functions that words accomplish within the circle of communication, that is, studying the role of words and the extent to which they are related to the activity of speech. The boundaries drawn by dictionaries for the word within narrow circles, related to description and identification necessarily, will be different from those textual-deliberative conditions of the word included in the conversational processes charged with the terms of interaction and influence, and this is what prompts us to distinguish between the words deposited in the memory of dictionaries and their expressive efficiency achieved in the context.
