TITLE-NODE AS A STYLO-SEMANTIC DEVICE IN THE WRITTEN TEXT

  • Macpherson N. Azuike

Abstract

This paper presents a study of the stylistic and semantic relationships that develop from the title-nodes of written texts e.g. newspaper editorials and essays. Node is used in this paper to represent that major word or phrase in a text or an editorial title to which other words or phrases in the body of the text can be related in some semantic dimension. These title nodes are used to create cohesion in a text. It is suggested that such relationships result from the recurrence of one or more words of a newspaper headline or essay title in the bodies of their texts in different forms.
