On the Relationship of Different Modalities in Multimodal Discourse

Dai Shu-lan;Jiangsu University of Technology;  
With the wide application of pictures and other visual images in modern society,the relationship between language,image,motion,posture,sound and other modalities is attracting more and more attention. People realize that the construction of meaning depends on the coordination of different semiotic resources. Following Barthes' tradition,social semiotics focuses on the minute‘grammatical'image-text relations,extending the achievements of the language system to the study of the image-text relations in discourses. Interactive sociolinguistics and cognitive linguistics pool their researching efforts into the relationship of different modalities in multimodal discourse. By doing research on the rise of pictures and other visual images in modern society,on the image-text relations including the status consistency,complementary relationship and the evaluative position in interpersonal function,this paper attempts to look into and reveal the discourse features of multimodal discourse,thus adds to the understanding and cognition of the relationship between different modalities,and enhances the healthy development of the area and lays a sound foundation for further research.
