This is not to deny the importance of phonetic features for differentiating registers, etc. 2). However, more is involved than considerations of register in attempting phonetic and phonological analyses. This is evident in the prosodic analysis approach of Firth, who exercised a formative influence on Halliday. The acceptance of the unrealisability of an approach to linguistics in which linguistic phenomena are regarded as causally derived from social structure would not require the abandonment of any belief that at least some aspects of linguistic structure are related to social structure.

The way we talk about language in a particular language - our everyday metalanguage - on the other hand forms part of the data for the description of that language. Inasmuch as the views of a particular theory accord with our everyday metalanguage, the theory concerned can be expected to provide a reasonable basis for a successful account of at least the metalinguistic aspects of that language. 3. For the moment, I wish to underline the following points: (i) the nonconcordance between our everyday metalanguage (and related language usages), and the psychological and sociological approaches to linguistics cannot be regarded as evidence of the non-validity of these approaches; (ii) the concordance between our everyday metalanguage (and related language usages), and the pure-systematic approach to linguistics can be regarded as suggestive of the validity of this approach, at least with respect to the analysis of everyday metalanguage.

In order to test this claim properly, one would need (apart from anything else) to operate with a general semiotic theory, under which natural languages could receive analysis. This is something which axiomatic functionalism offers, but which most approaches to linguistics do not. As Culler has noted of modern linguistics, "While other Saussurean concepts have been assimilated, Saussure's ruling concept, the notion of the sign and of language as a system of signs, has been largely neglected" (Culler 1976: 88).
