Subordination and Linguistic Complexity.
Schleppegrell, Mary J.
Discourse Processes, v15 n1 p117-31 Jan-Mar 1992
Demonstrates that in spoken discourse many clauses introduced by "subordinating conjunctions" are actually neither structurally nor informationally subordinate. Suggests that the study of linguistic complexity must include spoken as well as written discourse and take account of cultural and situational language contexts. (SR)
