    Discourse analysis is the study of language that goes beyond the limits of a single sentence. It focuses on analyzing the features of language in a larger context, such as conversations, texts, or speeches. This field examines how language is used to convey meaning, structure conversations, and create social interactions. It looks at various aspects like coherence, cohesion, and the relationship between language and social structures. Therefore, discourse analysis is the correct answer for the given question.

    • A.

      Morphology

    • B.

      Phraseology

    • C.

      Phoneme

    • D.

      Morpheme

    Correct Answer
    C. Phoneme
    Explanation
    A phoneme is the smallest unit of sound in a language that can change the meaning of a word. It is a distinct sound that differentiates words from one another. For example, in English, the sounds /p/ and /b/ are phonemes because they can change the meaning of words such as "pat" and "bat". Morphology refers to the study of word structure, phraseology refers to the study of phrases, and a morpheme is the smallest meaningful unit of a word. However, none of these options specifically address the concept of a speech sound causing a distinction in meaning, making "phoneme" the correct answer.

Examples of bound morphemes include -ing, -ed, -s, or re-. These morphemes do not linguistically stand alone and must be attached to a free morpheme such as celebrate, work, or learn.

This structure allows for clear and organized communication, as it helps to set the context before delving into the details. It helps the listener or reader to better understand the information being conveyed. Therefore, the correct answer is Topic-Comment structure.
