Abstract

The ‘text-structure world-structure theory’ (a formal semiotic text theory) has been conceived as an integrated theory, which is supposed to enable the analysis and description of all semiotic aspects of natural languages. (This text theory is henceforth referred to in this paper by the German abbreviation TeSWeST: ‘Text-Struktur Welt-Struktur-Theorie).
