What is Discourse Analysis? Discourse analysis is basically a common term for a range of approaches to analyze written, vocal, or sign language use or any significant semiotic event. Discourse analysis is usually viewed as language sentence or the clause. It is the look of linguistics that's concerned about how we build up meaning in larger communicative, instead of grammatical units. It studies meaning in text, paragraph and conversation, rather than in single sentence.
For example on page 2, “ One Navajo category is defined as "a fabric like object" (e.g., a blanket, an article of clothing, or a piece of paper), another as "a bulky object" (c.g., a heavy box, crate, or bundle), and so on”. You can see how words are easily turned into verbs. According to page 7, there are seven semantic dimensions that are required to define in necessary and sufficient terms, the categories labeled by the Western apache. They are then followed by thirteen verb stem categories and these categories must be precisely followed by the speaker. One example is making sure that the object is an animal.
2.1 Bilingualism There are many language in this world used to communicate. This phenomenon allows people to communicate with their own language. The diversity of language also invites people to learn another language based on their willingness or need. Those reasons are as a factor of the occurrence of bilingualism. Definitions of bilingualism range from a minimal proficiency in two languages, to an advanced level of proficiency which allows the speaker to function and appear as a native-like speaker of two languages.
3.15. IMPLEMENTATION OF 16i/p, 2o/p by 7:2 COMPRESSOR TREE:- Fig.3.15. 16:2 Compressor Tree design using 7:2 Compressors. We are implementing a 16-bit input and two bits as output by using 7:2 compressor tree. Here the inputs ranges from a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a and b1, b2, b3, b4, b5, b6(redundant bits), three external carry signals C1, C2, C3.
Bisyndetic coordination is attested in the emphatic and emphatic negative coordination where correlative coordinators are used. Emphatic coordination is discussed under conjunctive coordination below. On the semantic level, Chitoniya Tharu exhibits all the four types of coordinate constructions that Haspelmath (Coordination 2) discusses: conjunctive coordination, disjunctive coordination, adversative coordination and causal coordination. We proceed to discuss all these types of coordination in Chitoniya Tharu following Haspelmath (2004, 2007) in the paragraphs to come. 2.2 Conjunctive
The predicate may be a verb, an adjective, a proposition, or a noun phrase. All the arguments of a predicate have certain semantic roles and the predicate determines which semantic roles its arguments may take. In his book, Introducing English Semantics, Kreidler displays eight different semantic roles that arguments take. They are explained through verb valency, which is the number of arguments that accompany the predicate. For example, valency 1 involves performance and experience verbs (Kreidler, 48), such as die, walk, jump, wither, drown, etc.
The metaphor has been difened as 1) a shortened or implicit comparison, which substitutes one concept for another, or 2) as an interaction between two concepts, which transfers meanings. According to the first understanding, the metaphor presupposes a ground of similarity between the tenor and the image or vehicle. Accoirdung to the second definition, the metphor does more because it asks us to see x as y, to regard some in a new light (Bode 94). A metaphor appears in many forms; it combines two nouns, a noun and a verb, a qualifier and a noun, or it takes the shape of a statement. (Michael Meyer,
Myers-Scotton, (2006) pp. 293-294 classifies them as coordinate, compound, simultaneous, or sequential bilinguals. Early and late bilingualism have gone under a number of researches to find out how it develops and how literacy skills in two languages take place. This is one of my concerns in developing language awareness or metalinguistic awareness in teachers as well as learners to help them become competent communicatively speaking. Immigration, employment and educational opportunities are among some of the main reasons to become a bilingual

In communication, there are specific patterns and meanings of speech that should be mediated in the mental activity. This is the syntax element of a language, which is involved in the arrangement of words in a sentence and the meaning they derive from the arrangement. Although most languages use abbreviations in a speech, the abbreviations may not make sense without the knowledge of the basic formats of the language. Also, the omission of some words in a part of speech or sentence may result in a completely different meaning of the speech or sentence. Second language learners may have problems expressing themselves coherently even when they have the words but lack the organization of words to meaningful forms.
