Functional Dimensions of Ape-Human DiscourseeBook - 2005
Functional Dimensions of Ape-Human Discourse asks the question 'what do interactions between apes and humans mediated by language tell us?'. In order to answer this question the authors explore language-in-context, drawing on a multi-leveled, multi-functional linguistics. The levels are context of culture, context of situation, semantics, lexicogrammar, and phonology; and the functions are ideational, interpersonal, and textual.
