DU TOIT, A B. South African discourse analysis in theory and practice. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.29, n.2, pp.387-406. ISSN 2074-7705.
Discourse analysis should not be overly ambitious, but it can be a most helpful exegetical tool if it concentrates on the argumentative flow and thematic aspects of a discourse. A refined model of South African discourse analysis is presented. The different stages in this model are discussed and illustrated by means of Philippians 3:2-11. Special attention is given to problems regarding the dividing of the text into colons.
