Applying Linguistic Methods for a Semiautomatic Analysis of Corporative Documents: Standard Operating Procedure
Specialized discourses analysis (SDA) is derived from variables related to the subject and perspective of a topic, whose analysis is important (Cabré, 1999:529). According to the genre theory, we can analyze specialized discourses because they are written by members of specific communities.
Since SDA is based on linguistic analysis, in this chapter, we use several levels of linguistic analysis: (i) discourse rhetorical analysis (DRA) oriented to the construction of discourses by prioritizing the communicative intent of each genre, which is related with the internal analysis of textual units; (ii) morpho-syntactic analysis focused on the identification of features in terms of their morphological and syntactical properties; and (iii) semantic analysis, commonly involving several semantic markers to find out the relationship and dependence among the elements of phrases, as well as their meaning in the context.
