Previously viewed as a property of written texts dependent in great part on
relations of connectivity, coherence is now being seen as a "property of what
emerges during speech production and comprehension — the mentally
represented text, and in particular the mental processes that partake in
constructing that mental representation" (Gernsbacher and Givon 1995: viii). In
this view of coherence as a mental entity, "the interlocutors collaborate towards
coherence, negotiating for the ...

In producing and comprehending a text, be it spoken or written, the interlocutors
collaborate towards coherence, negotiating for the common ground of shared
topicality, reference, and thematic structure — thus toward a similar mental
representation. During conversation, the negotiation takes place collaboratively
between two (or more) active participants. During writing, revision and editing,
the negotiation occurs cognitively between the writer's own mental representation
and his ...

Yes, if it is taken to be aimed at decoding the linguistic code of collaboration:
shared topicality, reference, thematic structure, etc., are all instantiations of the
language users' shared code of collaboration towards coherence. This is an
important and fruitful insight. There are many similar examples of this line of work
in the functional linguistic literature, based on corpus studies, for instance on the
tendency subordinated clauses exhibit for containing background information (

However, when we investigate further with a couple of recent publications to
hand (e.g. Schiffrin, Tannen, Hamilton's The Handbook of Discourse Analysis
2001, Tanskanen's Collaborating towards Coherence: Lexical Cohesion in
English Discourse 2006), we observe that the general coherence model dealing
with just the text itself seems to have fallen out of favour; we have moved towards
what - in my opinion - may be regarded What hides behind the Use of Connective

"The main theme running through this volume is that coherence is a mental
phenomenon rather than a property of the spoken or written text, or of the social
situation. Coherence emerges during speech production and comprehension,
allowing the speech receiver to form roughly the same representation as the
speech producer had in mind. In producing and comprehending a text, be it
spoken or written, the interlocutors collaborate towards coherence. They
negotiate for a common ...
