On Communication Rules from a Social Perspective.
Sigman, Stuart J.
Human Communication Research, v7 n1 p37-51 Fall 1980
Discusses assumptions and criticisms of rule-governed approaches to interpersonal communication research and theory. Outlines a definition of rules that does not require sole reliance on interpersonal actors' statements about their behavior or assumptions of communicator self-awareness. Suggests consideration of rules-based concomitants of relationship developments which are socially patterned. (JMF)
