Linguistic LingField(s):  Linguistic Theories

Query:   I am a PhD student in the School of Public Affairs at UC Denver attempting to understand the Institutional Analysis and Development Framework's Insitutional Grammar Tool. More specifically, the tool deconstructs institutional statements in order to classify them as strategies, norms, and laws. They argue that further application needs to employ a theory of language - I am looking for a syllabus or suggested readings to get a comprehensive view of the various ''theories of language.''
