194 sub-steps: actions which contribute to the execution of the plan. If the sub-steps are not primitive, they can themselves be achieved through other plans. 7 The Coding Procedure No tools exist to automate a functional analysis of text, which makes coding a large body of text a timeconsuming task. We first performed a detailed coding of units of texts on approximately 25% of the corpus, or about 400 units, 3 using the WAG coder (O'Donnell, 1995), a tool designed to facilitate a functional analysis. We then used a public-domain concordance program, MonoConc (Barlow, 1994), to verify the representativeness of the results. We enumerated the realisations of those features that the first analysis had shown as marked, and produced KWIC 4 listings for each set of realisations. We found that th...
