For everyone who asked about the Pike reference:
Tagmemics Discourse and Verbal Art
by Kenneth L Pike
$6 from Amazon. they actually got me a copy. I left
out the word "most" from "recent" in the prior email,
but it's actually from 1981.
I ordered Linguistic Concepts : An Introduction to Tagmemics
also, but that one they haven't gotten to yet -- it's been
a couple of months.
In 'discourse' there are three short papers that are easy
to read but cover a whole lot of ground. In one of them
he discusses the linguistic complexity in the assembly
instructions (and carrying them out) for a bbq grill;
in the second he outlines tagmemics; and in the third
he talks about the time in a narrative or discourse in
relation to the actual events. The second paper is particularly
nifty, as Pike reflexively puts himself into the analysis.
I sat down and read the whole thing without getting up.
