Sample text

Raymond Chandler, Farewell my Lovely) than in a news report, where the focus is likely to be more exclusively on the representational meaning, or content, of what people say. Assumptions Implicitness is a pervasive property of texts, and a property of considerable social importance. All forms of fellowship, community and solidarity depend upon meanings which are shared and can be taken as given, and no form of social communication or interaction is conceivable without some such `common ground' .

Existential assumptions include the assumption that there are such things as globalization (pronominalized as `it ' in sentence 1) and as social cohesion (sentence 5); ((57)) that there is a widespread sense of unease, inequality and polarization (sentence 5); that there is a global economy (sentence 6) and a knowledge-based economy (sentence 7). e. `demanding'); that globalization is or constitutes economic progress (sentences I and 2); that people have hopes and aspirations and that the global economy makes demands (sentence 6); that social cohesion is a worthwhile social and political goal and that the knowledge-based economy does increasingly depend on human quality and the ability to work as a team (sentence 7); that reforms are necessary (sentence 8).

One example is: In the world of the Internet, information technology and TV, there will be globalization. And in trade, the problem is not that there's too much of it; on the contrary there's too little of it. The issue is not how to stop globalization. The issue is how we use the power of the community to combine it with justice. There is a repeated pattern here of denial followed by assertion — negative clause followed by positive clause. Denials imply the assertion `elsewhere' of what is being denied — in this case, that someone has asserted that there is too much globalization in trade, and that the issue is how to stop globalization.
