Just Launched! The "Meaning Patterns" Community in CGScholar

"Transposition is a likelihood, an impatience, a risk, a danger, a possibility, an opportunity, an impossibility, a shock, a hell, a utopia..."

Cope and Kalantzis outline their transpositional grammar in two volumes, published by Cambridge University Press:

"Just as Moby Dick was not really a story about a whale but a story about everything, Making Sense is not really a theory of meaning, but a theory of everything and a whale of a story to boot." James Paul Gee, Regents' Professor and Mary Lou Fulton Presidential Professor of Literacy Studies, Arizona State University.

"Adding Sense is a unique book, focusing on 'sense' from many theoretical angles, including anthropology, semiotics, and psychology. It is as brilliant as it is comprehensive, showing how we must access various sources of insight to complete the picture of what sense is." Marcel Danesi, Professor of Semiotics and Linguistic Anthropology, University of Toronto.
