Subject: Query: phatic communion

Dear subscribers to linguist list,


Do any of you know who it was that first introduced the concept phatic
communion? The oldest reference I have is Lyons (1968) (in Zegarac 1998); I
also know that Austin (1962) distinguished between phatic and rhetic acts.
Is there anyone earlier?

Thanks.

Ann J. K. Greenall

Subject: Job outlook for Ph.Ds


I am considering beginning a Ph.D program in linguistics, but I would
like to know more about the future job outlook for this field. What
percentage of Ph.Ds are able to find tenure track positions? I would
be very interested to hear from anyone on this list on this subject.
