A study of the tense process of literary discourse consists of the analysis of interaction between discourse extensions and discourse intensities. The intellectual source of such a study lies in the linguistic component: the stress-bearing units of language follow two important characteristics; they either bear stress and intensity that lead to their rise, or they lack stress and are weak which lead to their fall. Due to procedural nature of linguistic operations, this rise and fall reflect themselves throughout the discourse in literary discourses. As a result of the interaction between discourse intensities and extensions four procedural schemata are formed: A) the
procedural schema of the fall of the affective intensity and the rise of cognitive extensio.n; B) the procedural schema of the rise of affective intensity and the fall of the cognitive extension; C) the procedural schema of
the simultaneous rise of intensities and extensions; D) the procedural schema of the simultaneous fall of intensities and extensions. The study of these processes will indicate, on the one hand, that literary discourse is a dynamic trend that can never be terminated, or even be established at a certain point, and, on the other hand, it will determine manner according to which the interaction between the two cognitive and affective types will lead to the creation of meaning.
