As the background knowledge is essential for the relevant schema that the reader to understand the text, context theory should be focused on the high-level structure of discourse. Only through analyzing the cohesiveness, coherence, and context in the discourse, emphasizing the combination of language, cultural and psychological factors can ensure a correct understanding of the text.
