    Question Question on reiteration subtypes classified by Halliday and Hasan (1976)

    Hi there,

    I'm studying lexical reiteration as a kind of cohesion in English. The classification of reiteration by Halliday and Hasan (1976) which states that reiteration can be:
    - Repetition
    - Synonym or near-synonym
    - Superordinate
    - General word
    is quite confusing to me. Why isn't antonym listed here? Do you have any idea?

    And this is the definition given in "Cohesion in English" (1976:278):

    "Reiteration is a form of lexical cohesion which involves the repetition of a lexical item, at one end of the scale; the use of a general word to refer back to a lexical item at the other end of the scale; and a number of thing in between-the use of synonym, near-synonym, or superordinate."

    Thank you for your help.
