3. David Rose On Instantiation

David Rose thirdly writes in response to my comments on Jim Martin on Stratification:
discourse semantic systems are the potential for co-textualising grammatical meanings, instantiated as discourse semantic structures in text

Blogger Comment:

Instantiation is the relation of the system to the instance (of the system). The relation between system and structure — and between semantics and lexicogrammar — is realisation.
