To our knowledge, no one has yet analyzed the thematic organization of parallel
texts quantitatively. The present study looked at the thematic development of one
text-type in English (the source language) and the corresponding translations in
the other language, i.e. Chinese (the target language). Halliday's (1994)
categories for Theme classification in English with some modification were used
for this investigation. The findings based on a statistical analysis indicate that
despite a ...

A detailed analysis of one feature belonging to the textual meanings, namely
thematic development, in five different text-types given by Biber and Finegan, is

Studies have for example focussed on the thematic uses of non-referential there
in English-Finnish texts (Mauranen 1999), sentence openings and textual

in English and Norwegian (Hasselgard 1998, 2000), and thematic development
in English-German texts (Ventola 1995). To my knowledge, Ghadessy and Gao (

However, the method of development proceeds differently for the German and
Dutch texts and also, as we shall see below, for an equivalent English text; this is
shown schematically in Figure 7. The English, German and Dutch texts introduce
the hypertheme 'flu' ('Grippe', 'griep') in the first sentences (E:l), (G:l) and (D:l). In
the second sentences, thematic development starts to diverge: in the English text,
the previous theme ('it' coreferential with 'flu') has been chosen for theme of (E:2),
