This paper presents a revised Extended Model of Context (EMC), involving an intensified handling of context, which fits a dynamic implementation of FDG. Though all major context types accepted within the EMC model notably influence grammar, they can only directly affect discourse production and interpretation via their presence in interlocutors' minds. The Conceptual Component thus plays a crucial, moderating role in the treatment of interactions between the EMC and the Grammatical Component.
