Theme-Rheme and Textual Function

Song Ya-zhi (Harbin Engineering University, Harbin 150001, China)  
It is due to the interaction between new and old information that a te x t comes forward in a great degree. The interaction is the constitution of theme and rheme in the text, too. The arrangement of theme and rheme is mainly carri ed out in the pattern of thematic progression. And in the formation of a text t here is also a close relation between the pattern of thematic progression and te xtual function of theme and rheme. The proper use of Theme-Rheme structure can make the text consistent, progress forward smoothly and engender a different eff ect. This paper discusses the structure of Theme-Rheme and its textual function in a study of Western linguists’ theories.
