Modeling Multimodal Stratification

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This article discusses one of the core axioms of social semiotic theory, namely stratification, in the light of developments in multimodality in recent years. The discussion takes a point of departure in the approaches to stratification taken by Hjelmslev, Halliday, and Kress and van Leeuwen. The article outlines a theoretical experiment exploring how an alternative way of modeling stratification and instantiation may raise some interesting ideas on the concepts of realization dynamics, system-instance, and the different contexts of the semiotic text. This is elaborated in a discussion of how the relationship between stratification and instantiation in the multimodal instantiation of resources at different strata may provide a new approach to mapping out the dynamics of multimodal meaning making.
