Taylor, Talbot (1997) Theorizing Language. Amsterdam: Pergamon Books 
	(Elsevier Science Ltd)

Theorizing Language presents an original perspective on the
fundamental and methodological issues raised by inquiry into language.
The central theme is that language is an essentially reflexive
phenomenon. We make language what it is for us - we give it a
recognizable form and use - by making language itself the subject of
ordinary reflexive discourse: that is, by characterizing it, explaining it,
categorizing it, criticizing it, evaluating it, qualifying it, prescribing it,
etc. Language theory must recognize itself as merely a derivative (albeit
culturally authoritative) form of reflexive discourse.
