Cohesion in Film is a comprehensive account of how meanings in film are constructed coherently, offering practical methods for analysing concrete elements of film images and relating them to empirical investigation. Tseng addresses several empirical issues and provides specific analytical tools for tracking and patterning film elements such as characters, objects, settings and character action. In particular, she shows how the framework of film cohesion represents new ground for unravelling the ways in which film meanings are communicated to and interpreted by viewers. Through her analysis of several extracts from television and film texts, Tseng demonstrates the potential of the framework for comparing and contrasting media genres.

Chiao-I Tseng is Associate Researcher at the Faculty of Linguistics and Literary Science, University of Bremen, Germany. She has been applying mechanisms of discourse interpretation to multimodal text for several years and is currently involved in several research projects on application of text-linguistic methods to film analysis.Review:
"Cohesion in Film really is that rare thing, a genuinely new contribution to film studies. Earlier attempts at applying linguistic concepts to film theory have not always been particularly illuminating. Tseng's adaptation of systemic functional linguistics, however, provides a lucid and precise method for close readings of films. It is based on a solid analysis of how films offer information and how we process that information so that it makes narrative sense." - Henry Bacon, Professor of Film and Television Studies, University of Helsinki
