(p.195) Conclusion Towards a Theory of Performative Metalanguage

Ingunn Lunde

Edinburgh University Press

The book’s conclusion discusses the findings of Parts three and four and their implications for a general theory of what this book proposes to call performative metalanguage. Arguing that literary works may contain a metalinguistic dimension and intention, we maintain that a theory of performative metalanguage helps us understand this particular form of linguistic commentary, mapping out ways in which we can identify and assess such reflection.

Keywords:   post-Soviet language culture, sociolinguistic change, language ideologies, language debate, linguistic variation, performative metalanguage, metalanguage
