Description

This chapter will focus on five further systems relevant to interpersonal meaning: those of focalisation, affect, pathos, ambience and graduation. ocalisation is a reinterpretation and elaboration of Kress and van Leeuwen’s system of contact, and, like affect and pathos, it is very much concerned with the depiction of characters in the stories. ambience, in part a reinterpretation of Kress and van Leeuwen’s system of modality, is primarily concerned with the depiction of settings and the use of colour to create a mood. graduation is a term borrowed from SFL work on appraisal (Martin and White, 2005) to refer to strategies for intensifying gradable interpersonal meanings. Topics include: 2.1 Interpersonal meaning; 2.2 focalisation; 2.3 pathos and affect; 2.4 ambience; 2.5 graduation; 2.6 Visual interpersonal meaning in The Tinpot Foreign General and the Old Iron Woman
