Description

This speculative chapter about the physical action of operative surgery is presented as a dialogue between surgeon and linguist. The value of the collaboration lies in the difference between the two perspectives, which the reader will appreciate are not in complete alignment. We hoped that both linguists and surgeons could read this chapter with the back and forth exchange clarifying the points being made from outside their respective fields. This chapter can be read as a monologue by concentrating on the one font.
