Description

The ‘well regulated nature of parole’, i.e. naturally occurring discourse involving ‘exchanges of meaning between ordinary speakers as participants in “concerted social activities”’ (Malinowski 1923) should, argues Hasan in The Place of Context in a Systemic Functional Model (2009), ‘put both language use and context centre stage in linguistics’.
