... the word in language is half someone else’s… it becomes ‘one’s own’ only when the speaker populates it with his own intention, his own accent, when he appropriates the word...

  Mikhail Bakhtin


If we accept that language is socially produced (and producing) system, then collaboration is more the condition of discourse than its exception. Interpreting from a collaborative perspective acknowledges language as a process of exchange; rather than policing discourse off into agents, origins, and interpretations, a collaborative focus elaborates the social mechanism of language, discourse as intercourse.

  Jeffrey Masten
