"This is a detailed and rich look at the relationship--you show it is complex and not just a simple one- or even two-way street. You will want to proofread to catch existing errors, and make sure to read through for clarity issues, including precise language. One example is the differentiation between "meaning" and "importance." It's good that you stop to define the difference, but there seems to be a lot of overlap between the two concepts as analytical tools. Consider exploring the difference with more precision so your reader can follow the significance of dividing these two concepts. (Alternately, is there a more precise term that could be used for "meaning"?) Finally, make sure to read through and think about editing to streamline the writing. I noticed a few areas where sentences were retreading very similar ideas. See if you can trim or synthesize the ideas/sentences for a smoother, more direct reading experience; or, on the other hand, see if you need to revise to differentiate the sentences further (for example, the second and third sentence of the paper)."
