It is devoted to the establishment of a grammatical framework for studying the relationship between sentences in a sequence, viz. Chapter I describes five types of sentence as classified in this thesis. Chapter II sets up sentence constituents as elements of sentence structure. Chapter III begins with the classification of phrases into five different types and proceeds to the postulation and detailed description of phrase constituents for two of them. This is followed by the detailed description of the remaining three types. Chapter IV is concerned with the setting up of classes and subclasses of word. Part TWO Its main theme is an attempt to describe the relations obtaining between sentences in a series, as expressed at various stages of the grammatical analysis with reference to the conceptual framework of the contexts of mention and of interrogation. It is divided into ten chapters, viz., Chapter V deals with the concepts of the context of mention and the context of interrogation. Chapters VI to XII is concerned with different formal linguistic features which may relate sentences in a sequence. Chapters XIII and XIV describe certain extra-linguistic features which are relevant to this study.
