Board Description
Language games
Moghaddam says that for social constructionists “language is recognized as not just descriptive, but constructive”. Butt introduces (p. 68) the concept of language games and says that promising, warning, and cajoling are examples of such games. Is the concept of language games more consistent with the idea of language as descriptive or with the idea of language as constructive? Explain.
