Abstract

The interdependent relation of clause complexes in SFL is grammatical in nature, and the logico-semantic relation, semantic. In this study, we divided the interdependent relations into parataxis, hypotaxis, and embedding and conducted a corpus-based study on these types of relations. The research findings will answer the research questions.
