Abstract

The topic of this paper is the way in which speakers order information in discourse. I will refer to this issue with the term “linearization”, and will begin with two types of general remarks. The first one concerns the scope and relevance of the problem with reference to some existing literature. The second set of general remarks will be about the place of linearization in a theory of the speaker.
