Variation Dans La Composition Lexicale De Styles Oraux (Variation in the Composition of the Lexicon Between Oral Styles).
Dewaele, Jean-Marc
IRAL, v34 n4 p261-82 Nov 1996
Shows that variation in the composition of the lexicon at token-level between more and less formal oral styles is identical to the variation between written and oral discourse. The article argues that speakers deictically anchor their utterances in a non-linguistic spatio-temporal context and that the degree of context-dependence is reflected in the composition of the lexicon.
