Abstract:   本篇論文主要研究賽考利克泰雅語言談語料中的指示詞在功能語法的言談分析下是如何使用銜接功能並且形成語篇。並聚焦在包括qani「這」、qasa「那」以及yasa「那」三個在語料中出現頻率較高之指示詞進行分析討論。
This thesis studies how demonstratives in Squliq Atayal language help to create a texture in discourse, using the concept of cohesion in s systemic-functional grammar. We focus on analysing and discussing qani “this”, qasa “that” and yasa “that”, since these three demonstratives show the highest frequency of use in our language data.
In functional grammar, demonstratives use deictic reference to form cohesion inside text structure. However, demonstratives use more than one deictic referential function to form cohesion inside a texture. They might also simultaneously use functions other than reference to form cohesive ties. By forming a cohesive tie to the referential target, this cohesive tie will go into semantic level and form a cohesive chain with other cohesive ties refering back to the referent and the core theme or topic of the texture.
In this thesis we found that in discourse data, qani “this” is used for anaphoric and exophoric reference and both two phoric functions form cohesive ties. Qasa “that” only has an anaphoric function. Yasa “that” has an anaphoric function in deictic reference but also has a summarizing function that creates cohesive ties through conjunction. Furthermore, the semantics of referential target will form a cohesive chain refering back to the referent and the core theme or topic of the text structure Therefore, they form a texture that is logically coherent.
