Abstract

Abstract Based on the theoretical framework of Textual-Interactive Grammar, this work discusses the recognition of a basically systematic linguistic unit in the field of the textual organization of language. Therefore, it investigates the Topic Organization in newspaper editorials of the state of São Paulo in 21 st century, with the aim of evaluating if, in editorials, the internal structuring of minimal Topic Segments (SegTs), part of the Topic Organization, is configured as a systematic process, which can to be described according to a general rule of organization, or if is an essentially variable process. Using the method of topic analysis that enables the textual analysis based on the category of the discourse topic, the paper analyzes 25 editorials from newspapers Folha de S. Paulo and O Estado de S. Paulo, and it shows that the minimal SegTs in the editorials are organized according with a single principle, that involves the potentially recursive combination of two units of intratopic organization - position and support, which allows arguing the text is highly regular, founded in own constitutive properties.
