  • 摘要:This paper proposes a new theoretical framework for the analysis of discourse. Thus, this paper presents the Pragma-crafting Theory to explain discourse from a more comprehensive and integrative perspective. Insights from research in pragmatics, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis and semiotics give this study direction. Two super-ordinate concepts in the theory are EVENT and TEXT. The former consists of interactive and noninteractive participants while the latter consists of setting, theme and p-crafting features. Therefore, the theory is particularly an extension of Mey (2001). On the whole, the present study finds out that an all-encompassing analysis of communicative events presupposes the explanation of the interaction between communication acts (speech acts, segmental features, supra-segmental features, phones, exclamations, lyrical and non-lyrical music, sociolinguistic variables, drumming, semiotic particulars, etc.) and communication features such as indexicals,shared macro-knowledge, shared contextual knowledge, shared knowledge of emergent context, geoimplicature,contextual implicature and other P-crafting features.
