Dicana

The combination of Discourse, Cateity and Narrative, together forming a triad of how people think and talk, how they relate to themselves and each other, and how they contextualize it all into patterns of meaning. Note that the concept of discourse is flexible: A wide conceptualization of discourse may include cateity and narrative, and may thus be synonymous with dicana. As all three aspects of dicana are done through each other, the acts of creating cateitization and narrativization are discursive acts even in the more limited definition of discourse.

The dicana triad model has three forms: While dicana itself is the passive and most inclusive form, dicanaization is the active form and dicanaism the destructive form.
