Linguistics: An Introduction

By William B. McGregor



Chapter 7A

This additional chapter, which was excluded from the published text because of considerations of length, deals with structure above the level of the sentence, with the structure of text and discourse. It belongs naturally in Part II, Language: A Human Phenomenon, presenting as it does a different perspective on language use to that presented in Chapter 7, namely doing rather than being.
