Hi Larry. Do you have a succinct definition for your use of chiasm here
please? Are you referring, additionally, to the ability to compound various
separate images/functions? E.g. Halliday's (Lang of Early Childhood)
reference to mathetic and pragmatic functions that, starting off static,
become dynamic and may be applied to each other?
In my reading of the article, I thought there was a few fundamental points,
or interpretations, made, but that this was over-baked somewhat by notions
of "abandoning ideas" and the treatment of subject and object seemed a bit
heavy handed too (perhaps a 2nd language for the author?).
