This book sums up and further develops ideas of the author's books
Linguistische Einheiten im Rahmen der modernen Sprachwissenschaft (Berlin
1966), Linguistic units and items (Berlin 1976) and Linguistic units and
items II (Frankfurt am Main 1995). The terminological system generally
accepted for phoneme-allophone-phone and morpheme-allomorph-morph is
developed so as to include all fundamental facts of language in a
five-level description. The levels are α with phonemes, prosodemes,
syllabemes etc.; β with contouremes and stylemes; γ with idiolemes,
sociolemes and dialemes; δ with proxemes and kinemes; ε with text aspects.
In a detailed or "narrow" description an item (variant or realisation) from
one level is conditioned by items from all the other levels. Both spoken
and written language, and the relationship between them, should be included
in a complete description.

The synchronic description of a language is fundamentally taxonomic. In
recent years many "explanations", complex "models" and "theories" have been
suggested which in the opinion of the author are mostly not adequate
because they do not directly describe the language known and used by the
speakers and writers.

Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics
