An attempt to demonstrate what is involved in a heuristics aiming at regularities in the temporal aspects of texts as linguistic objects. Amongst many other things, K. argues that the acceptability of a discourse has to be illuminated sufficiently before its grammaticality can be profitably studied, and that acceptability can only be characterized within an appropriate functional model of language.
