This chapter concludes that not everything is intersubjectivity, though intersubjectivity is widespread. There is a strong dialectics between specific, sometimes minute problems of linguistic analysis and very general views of the function and structure of language. The chapter claims that the grammatical phenomena discussed in the previous chapters require a view of language according to which it is completely normal that the function of grammatical elements and constructions relates to the dimension of intersubjective coordination. The chapter also mentions that grammar provides systematic instruments for mutual management of a special kind.
