A Functional Analysis of “Trap-setting” Cell Phone Messages

Zheng QingjunLiberal Arts College of Hunan Normal University Changsha Hunan 410081  
This paper is a practice in functional discourse analysis, using Halliday's systemic functional linguistics as the theoretical framework. The data to be analyzed are cell phone messages, whose contents typically consist of two parts, with the former serving as a “trap-setting” device and the latter as the key. From the perspectives of the Hallidayan metafunctions(i.e. experiential, interpersonal, textual), these analyses show that linguistic devices such as the choice of personal pronouns, mood structures, process types and thematic structures are of great prominence. It is found that the basic structural pattern of this discourse type is typically of three parts: begin-continue-change/fall.
