Example text

However, to linguists, discourse analysis builds on syntax and semantics (Gee 2014a). That is, discourse analysis takes as its beginning point ‘sentences’ or ‘utterances’ that have already been assigned a structure (syntax) in terms of basic units and their combinations and a semantics in terms of the basic (‘literal’) meanings of these units and their combinations. Discourse analysis analyses language in use and it deals with meanings that go beyond semantics and involve context and inference.

Who’s writing whom? Most approaches to texts in the field of discourse analysis have focused either on how they are structured to encode meaning – as, for example, in Halliday and Hasan’s (1976) attention to the cohesive relationships between clauses which create ‘texture’ – or on their communicative functions – as in Brown and Yule’s (1983: 190) definition of a text as ‘the verbal record of a communicative event’. In other words, discourse analysts have generally been more concerned with how authors construct texts (as opposed to how texts construct authors), and with how people use texts to communicate with others (as opposed to how they use them to communicate with themselves).

For self-trackers, synchronisation can lead them to jump to conclusions about the relationship between two or more processes (for example, my mood and my weight), while ignoring what might be more significant factors simply because they are less amenable to algorithmic retemporalisation. It can also encourage people to conflate correlation with causation, leading to forms of behaviour change that may have little or no impact on the issue they are trying to address. 42 Rodney H. Jones Recontextualisation The third aspect of data processing associated with the apps I analysed is recontextualisation.
