Table of contents
Since the late 1970's linguistics has been profiting from research in pragmatics and discourse analysis, and the myth of a unitary language which ignores individual, social, stylistic and occupational variation has finally been laid to rest. Since the early 1980's it has also become possible to explore these concerns with text and context interlingually.
