|Title:||Competence and Performance in Language and Culture|
|Authors:||Rees, Margaret C.|
|Abstract:||<p>The claim is made that a theory of performance must include theories of communicative or cultural competence. A theory of performance will model the interlocking of related but distinct communicative competences.</p> <p>Some hypotheses concerning the relationship of language and culture are considered briefly. The concepts of competence and performance as used currently in linguistic analysis are disoussod in the light of the competence-performance distinction, and evidence gathered from this discussion as to the nature of a theory of performance.</p>|
