Analysis is not only interested in the semantic profile of a word but concentrates on the analysis of the ‘how’ as well, that is, how the word has been placed, spelled out, etc. This procedure allows analysis of the relations between meanings and thus provides a basis for reaching a structural level. This leads to • Principle 3: The ‘microscopic analysis’ aims at discovering the meaning between the lines and thus at uncovering the structure of the social object represented in a text.
