Synopsis:
  • Formalism
  • Six elements of communication:
  • A message
  • ...is sent by an addresser
  • ...to an addressee
  • _who shares a common code,
  • _a physical channel (contact)
  • ... and a context
  • Emotive function: the speaker's attitude to the topic
  • Conative function: the addressee (eg, vocative and imperative sentences)
  • Referential function: cognitive use of language (entails the presence of a self-conscious narrator)
  • Poetic function: aesthetic function of language ( the message for its own sake)
  • Metalingual function: the verbal code itself
  • Phatic function: the contact between speaker and addressee
