In linguistics, the study of discourse coherence is concerned with identifying the connections that exist between discrete segments of text within the context of a larger discourse. These connections, or relations, contribute to the unity of the discourse as a whole and articulate a level of meaning beyond the grammatical and syntactical relationships and lexical meanings of the words themselves. In Coherence, Reference, and the Theory of Grammar, Andrew Kehler set forth a taxonomy of discourse coherence relations using as an organizing factor David Hume’s three principles of connection among ideas: resemblance, contiguity, and cause-effect. Aniruddh Patel, in his book, Music, Language, and the Brain, has suggested the possibility of applying the principles of linguistic discourse coherence to the medium of music.
