Support for this position comes from a study carried out by Keller (1979). In his work on gambits, or semi-fixed expressions used by speakers to structure the content of a message, he finds that ‘a comparison of a large number of gambits from the same category also revealed that at least for some gambits, some of the lexemes making up the expression may be more substitutable than others’, and that ‘the construction by itself contains some social and semantic information only to be completed and refined by the specific content words to ‘fill the slot’(1979: 231).
This was to ensure representativeness and to create a base for comparison between the different categories. However, it soon emerged that certain situations occur less often than others. Unidirectional discourse in intimate encounters, for example, is very rare, and the low word count in this category is thus not a reflection of the representativeness of the data in the corpus, but more indicative of the occurrence of this type of interaction in general. Furthermore, with a focus on ‘casual conversation’, a low proportion of ‘information provision’ discourse, and a high word count in the socio-cultural context-type, seemed to provide a better representation of the kind of every-day interaction that the corpus set out to cover.
