Dissertation Abstract:

Using ideas from Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations on 'following
a rule', three types of examples were analysed from technical, legal and
linguistic data. Sentence groups were selected on the basis of having one
sentence with 'for example' in initial position. Analysis focussed on the
different lexical and grammatical forms evident in each group of example
sequences, usually in a three sentence unit comprising
Generalisation/Particularisation/Evaluation. Example forms were shown to be
related to and dependent on the particular discourse practices of each
example field, as well as the non-linguistic practises of the fields.
