Abstract

This erudite book opens with a deceptively simple introduction in which the author puts forth the prospect of treating prose compositions as “unique modes of packaging” which present differences in information structure/design that resultantly produce varied pragma-discoursal effects. In this compilation of nine well-researched papers published in international journals from 2001 onwards, Asha Tickoo, explores a gamut of composing skills such as indefinite reference framing, marking of temporal passage and the structure of enumeration, that often present a challenge to the EFL learner.
