6. Description Abstract Apart from textual meanings, phonology builds interpersonal meanings. The system of MOOD has been frequently related to intonation choices. This chapter will explore the possible relationships between speech functions and phonology. Furthermore, choices at the stratum of expression are also said to express speakers’ attitudes towards their message and their interlocutors. In oral texts, phonological choices can also be related to the system of MODALITY, as they contribute in the enactment of interpersonal relations and in the interactants’ projections of identities. The connection between the interpersonal system of appraisal and the systems in the phonology will also be discussed.
