Figure Of Having In Causal Sequence Realised As Accompaniment


(Ignoring the unpacked metaphors)

With free entry to over 30 of the city’s top attractions, free return airport and city centre bus transport, a free guidebook and lots of exclusive offers
the Edinburgh Pass
is
the best way to explore the Scottish capital
Accompaniment: comitative
Token
Process
Value


Cf the agnate enhancing (causal: reason) non-finite clause:

Providing
free entry to over 30 of the city’s top attractions, free return airport and city centre bus transport, a free guidebook and lots of exclusive offers
Process
Attribute



Cf the agnate enhancing (causal: reason) finite clause:

because
it
provides
free entry to over 30 of the city’s top attractions, free return airport and city centre bus transport, a free guidebook and lots of exclusive offers

Carrier 
Process
Attribute

The commonality that makes this grammatical metaphor possible is the logical semantic relation of extension — both 'having' and 'accompaniment' are manifestations of extension.
