Description

In Speaking with Reference to Context (1999), Hasan acknowledges instances, however, where contextual/registerial constancy across a text can be called into question, i.e. where ‘the integrity of a text survives certain kinds of contextual/registerial changes.’ Rather than describe the relationship between context and text in deterministic terms, Hasan instead describes the relationship as being more along the lines of a ‘realizational dialectic’.
