Summary

Since around 1970, a “communicative-pragmatic turn” can be observed in linguistics internationally. H. turning away from system-oriented or system-centered linguistics and turning to communication-oriented linguistics. The central interest of linguistics shifted from the internal (syntactic and semantic) properties of the language system to the function of language in the complex structure of (social) communication. The preceding linguistics (especially from DE SAUSSURE to CHOMSKY) had hardly seen these complex relationships: they had almost exclusively limited themselves to the internal language system, and largely dealt with the questions of the use of the language system in concrete communication processes (as a "parole") from linguistics excluded and consequently worked with an abstracted, isolated and reduced object without always being aware of it, that why and About what one has abstracted (cf. in detail HARTUNG et al., 1974a: MOTSCH. 1974: NEUMANN et al. 1976).
