- QUOTE: … A discourse is considered to be a coherent sequence of clauses, sentences or propositions. Discourse relations, such as causal, temporal, and contrastive relations, are relations between eventualities and propositions mentioned in a text, from which we can draw deep or complex inferences about the text. Often, discourse relations are realized in text by explicit words and phrases, called discourse connectives, but they can also be implicit.
