A symbol of a dynamic system of related principles, like the Balance Structure has principles that describe its parts, functions, and relationships.
In literary studies this term refers to the large-scale aesthetic form of a work as a whole: the relations among its parts and their relation to the whole work. Parts include the beginning and ending, the chief events enumerated in between, the gaps or transitions between events, elements repeated, and the means by which the work may be ultimately regarded as unified and coherent. In a narrative work, structure also involves the representation of time, the duration of the action, the pace or tempo of its unfolding, intervals between events, and the order in which events are presented as opposed to the order in which they actually occurred. This macrocosmic level of structure is distinct from the microscopic level referred to as style, which as a rule considers smaller-scale aspects such as an author's diction and syntax, cadences, and paragraphing. In general, myths tend to be analyzed structurally rather than stylistically, with attention to the largest building blocks rather than to the fine points of style associated with particular authors.

The way that the various parts of a literary text related to each other and form patterns or the ways in which many texts relate to each other. Structure depends to a great extent on repetition and variation of the same or similar elements. Literary theory that focuses on structure, particularly the relationships of large bodies of literary text, is called "structuralism". To approach text in this way is to perform a structural analysis.
the way in which letters are built up into words, and words are grouped together to convey meaning and information. The term can also refer to the design of an activity or period of learning, where timing and resources have been planned towards the learner achieving an identified goal.
The structure of something is how the parts of it relate to each other, how "it is put together". This contrasts with process, which is how the things change and a structure is how they are connected.
