On the Facts of the Language in Question or a Conversation with W. Labov.
Legum, Stanley E.
A conversation with William Labov in September 1970, is the basis of this paper. Labov, who is working on a new theory of language which essentially makes style the function of grammar, divides linguistic description into the following five interrelated segments: semantic network, oriented semantic network, lexicalization, grammaticalization, and phonologization. Descriptions of these terms and their functions are given. (TS)
