One of the most important and process-based schemas in the field of discourse is the "tensive process". According to this schema, a correlation occurs between the elements of semiotic sign, where meanings fluctuates from their less to the most highlighted forms. "The tensive structure" analyzes discourse on the basis of notions like intensity-extensity relationship in which meanings are formed and values are manifested.
The present article seeks to explain and analyze the Story of the Be'that (Resurrection) of Moses (AS) in Surah Taha via a Semiotic Analysis of the Tensive Model, since this Surah is faced with a live discourse with a wide range of intensive-extensive correlation. In this paper, the authors use a semiotic analysis method, relying on the tensive model to answer these questions: How are new meanings created and valued in the interactive enunciation environment of God and Moses? 2. Based on what tensive model, the discourse process of the Be'that (Resurrection) of Moses (AS) is structured? 3. How does this discursive story act based on the tensive model in the enunciation, and shape the narrative process of discourse?
The results of the present article showed that in the discourse process of the Be'that (Resurrection) of Moses (AS) in Surah Taha, God plays a key role as the enunciator. The narrative process of the Be'that (Resurrection) of Moses (AS) based on the tensive model analysis has three amplification, attenuation, and ascendant tensive model. In the discursive process of this story, the verses (9-11-12-13-17-18-19-21) sharply progress in the direction of joining the God-Moses enunciation space with the ascendant tensive model. The verses (14-15-16-22-23-24) with concurrent discontinuity-continuity form, act in the direction of concurrent amplification in the intensity-extensity correlation. Based on the tensive structure, the two verses 10 and 20 are in parallel with the descendant tensive model and in the direction of discursive discontinuity.
