[Xmca-l] Re: how to broaden/enliven the xmca discussion



Thanks Paul --

Could you take me a little further? Others might have the same question:
How do the Searles and Austin views of semiotic mediation differ, Paul,
such that Martin's formulation only works for one of them?

And how do they coincide, or differ, from Halliday's views, David Ke?

What are the major implications of the differences??
