Discourse Function of Grammar Rules: Topic Construction in German.
Kramsch, Claire J.
Modern Language Journal, v67 n1 p13-22 Spr 1983
German offers a good example of how syntax meets the discursive needs of speakers/hearers and writers/readers. A pedagogic grammar should put the emphasis on the ways the foreign language conceptualizes reality and on the syntactic realization of those concepts for construction of discourse. (Author/MSE)
