Enacting Appraisal: Text Analysis

  • J. R. Martin
  • P. R. R. White

Abstract

In this chapter we will demonstrate some of the ways in which appraisal systems can be used to inform our interpretation of evaluation in text. In particular we are concerned here with the interaction of attitude, engagement and graduation in relation to the social context variable tenor. We will also comment on the interaction between appraisal and other modes of meaning, in order to make contact with more comprehensive approaches to discourse semantics (such as those outlined in Martin & Rose 2003).
