The Role of Language and the Language of Role in Institutional Decision Making.
Mehan, Hugh
Language in Society, v12 n2 p187-211 Jun 1983
The relationship between linguistic processes, cognitive activities, and social structures is explored by examining the decision-making of committees of educators deciding whether or not to place students in special education programs. Differential treatment of committee members is explained by the authority their reports gain by their language and mode of presentation. (MSE)
