    Hi all,

    I am looking for references and would like to ask for your help.

    For my thesis I'm trying to collect as many citations as possible that relate
    to convention, norm, tradition, patterns and rules and where these apply to
    language and social behaviour. The main idea behind what I do is that people
    follow conventions in language even when the form or genre of the language is
    very recent (web - hypertext).

    So far I have quite a nice collection ranging from Saussure to Gideon Toury,
    Vygotsky to Lawrence Lessig, Josh Cohen to Itamar Even-Zohar, etc. (I know
    some ideas are considered -- historically -- greater than others - but I do
    want a good range of fields, interests and opinions). I would consider ANY
    citation, even remotely related, and will post a summary back to the list
    after putting them all together.

    Thanks for your help

    Einat Amitay

    Is there a difference between a formal method and a structured method? Are the use of structured methods more appropriate in this regard? Why is scientific investigation privileged? Are methods of design and investigation in technology as appropriate as science?
