6. Description Abstract This chapter examines the interaction between various discourse-managing tools that writers have at their disposal to help manage text. The author discusses, in detail, how paragraph-initial and paragraph-final language interact with the paragraph break, and how these interactions influence what the paragraph break is and does. It is argued that a multi-signaling approach to discourse management is necessary to understand the paragraph, an approach which does not consider the paragraph break in isolation but alongside its co-occurrence with other discourse-organizing signals and genre conventions.
