According to the discoursal view of language, any move or variation in the textualization process is considered to be discoursally motivated. The present paper would focus on the lexicalization as one dimension of this textualization process and examine the lexical strategies employed by discourse producer. The paper would take a specific piece of text (a short story by Poe) as its data and look at the way lexical choices attempted there and the lexical networks produced thereby would contribute to the texture of the text, affect its cognition, and enhance its intended literary value. It would also discuss the cognitive value of the lexical strategies and the interaction among the lexical chains in a text drawing implications for the pedagogy of language.

خلاصه ماشینی:

"Language teachers can promote the readability of texts by trying to make their lexical chains more transparent to their students prepares the scene and the reader to face the terrible events of the story (Figure 9). This direct interaction creates a cognitive effect on the reader and, one would presume, activates his or her discourse comprehension process leading to a better understanding and negotiation of the central theme of the story (Figure 8). In this way they have interactions with the members of the second (field of time) and the sixth (field of place/location) semantic fields and function as the chain which activates the scene in the mind of the reader; and in this way it develops and reinforces the theme of the story in the reader''''s cognitive system. As mentioned earlier, in this examination, the text will be analysed in terms of the lexical chains and interrelations among them in order to describe the hidden patterns which, we argue, would contribute to the cognitive and aesthetic effect of the text, as well as to the development of the theme of the story which is disintegrating effect of fear and the resulting depression of soul. The present paper will focus on lexical cohesion and look at the way the lexical choices made by the discourse producer within the boundary of a text would create lexical chains and how such chains would be cognitively functional in the textual processing."
