He drowned/died. 2. 6 area F: components related to the relation among reference and its illustration the standards during this area all relaxation on what seems to be a basic attentional bias in language clients towards content material over shape. One issue establishes that: extra recognition is going to the idea that expressed through a linguistic shape than to the form of that shape. This holds for types starting from a unmarried morpheme to an expression (or to a longer discourse, for that matter). for instance, on the unmarried morpheme point, if a spouse says (8a. ) to her husband, the incidence of the morpheme in poor health is probably going to direct the husband’s recognition extra to its referent “sickness” than to its phonological illustration which include the sound series [s]-[ ]-[k]. This comparable phonological aspect may be made on the point of the full expression in (8a. ). furthermore, although, if the “representation” of an expression as lined through the current issue may be taken additionally to incorporate the actual 32 A S P E C T S O F AT T E N T I O N I N L A N G UA G E phrases and structures chosen to represent the expression, a different remark follows. The husband during this instance is later likely to be mindful the final reference of the sentence than its particular wording. therefore, he may well good be capable to bear in mind that his spouse telephonically realized from her sister of her disease past that day, yet he may not be capable of keep in mind even if this perception was once represented, say, by way of (8a. ), (8b. ), or (8c. ) (here, understanding that “Judy” is her sister’s name). If the trend of reminiscence of an occasion correlates not less than partially with the development of recognition on an occasion in the course of its prevalence, then findings just like the current variety will be facts for higher awareness on a reference than on its illustration. 8a. My sister referred to as and stated she was once very unwell this morning. 8b. My sister known as this morning to inform me that she used to be feeling quite ailing. 8c. Judy stated she used to be very unwell while she known as at the present time. 2. 7 area G: components related to the incidence of illustration The salience of an idea can rely on the prevalence of illustration for it in a language’s lexicon, or on its uncomplicated inclusion in discourse. by way of one issue of this final subdomain, the presence inside discourse of overt linguistic types explicitly bearing on an idea foregrounds the idea that. And the absence of varieties concerning an idea that may rather be represented backgrounds that idea. this is often the issue underlying the complete of the “windowing of cognizance” research in Talmy (2000a, bankruptcy 4). As heritage for the current issue, a speaker in speaking may have a definite conceptual advanced that she desires to reason to develop into replicated within the addressee’s cognition. The conceptual advanced is usually too wealthy to seize in complete scope and aspect in a short adequate period for any cognitively possible procedure of illustration. For this challenge, one of many options that turns out to have emerged within the evolution of language is a cognitive strategy of “abstractive illustration.
