JAKSOBSON'S MODEL OF LANGUAGE FUNCTION
creates relationships between what is perceived or known by one person and what
is perceived or known by another; it also relies on pre-existing relationships.
The receiver and originator of a message must work from some common
understanding of what sorts of patterns are used to communicate and how these
patterns are related to other events. Communication has to do with community
both in the sense that it relies on having something in common in the first
place and in the sense that it can influence what the communicants subsequently
have in common. - David Ritchie
In 1950 Roman Jakobson introduced a theory that considers the way that spoken
language is put to use in human communication. This model of communication
function consists of two layers of description -- one that describes
the various elements of language use, and one that shows what humans do
with the language when they use it. 1022 1035 1043 1044 1045
