“…commenting on a set of papers is itself an intertextual exercise. To point out connections among the papers, and tie them in various ways to one’s own text, is a metalevel intertextual task that – if (as one hopes) one is perspicacious or just lucky – is to co-construct the papers’ cumulative effect. It is an interdiscursive task […] intertextualit -, or interdiscursivity – as a specific semiotic effect must be created in practice” (Commentary: Knots and Tears in the Discursive Fabric Journal of Linguistic Anthropology, Vol 15, No 1, June 2005, p. 72).
