Summary: Discourse analysis in theory and practice Discourse analysis should not be overly ambitious, but it can be a most helpful exegetical tool if it concentrates on the argumentative flow and thematic aspects of a discourse.

Special attention is given to problems regarding the dividing of the text into colons.
