As a linguist, Kenneth Pike developed tagmemics
through the Summer Institute of Linguistics and the Wycliff Bible Translators, for he had a practical aim in analyzing unwritten languages for future Bible translations.
Social analytics and data science company Tagmemics
has compiled data using analysis from over 10,000 reviews posted across a nine month period to determine how hotels are doing in the online sphere.
The "temporal" theory of linguistic form that I am suggesting most closely resembles Kenneth Pike's tagmemics
, which also analyzes linguistic forms into four-part paradigms based on dialectically opposed qualities, and as a result, claims that linguistic forms across all levels of structure (sound, prosody, syntax, meaning, discourse, etc.) are related by pervasive formal similarities, although Pike never suggested that rhythm is the source of these analogies and therefore never developed a logic to underpin his formal observations.
This is Ritz-Carlton's third such accolade in recent months: social analytics and data science company Tagmemics

Pike's linguistic theory called tagmemics
, which analyses language and behavior through the identification of emic and etic units (Pike 1971).
I was sent to the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor because technically I was in linguistics (a "linguist on loan to the literary arts") and Ann Arbor had a large laboratory of Pike's tagmemics
as well as a center on French as a second language where cutting-edge work was being done in collaboration with Bernard Q*** at the Saint-Cloud Ecole Normale Superieure and Jean P*** at Besancon.
Functional Grammar, Systemic FG), or "parallelistic," like Montague's (1974) rule-to-rule Categorial Grammar, Tagmemics
, HPSG, Construction Grammar, Jackendoff's (1997) Representational Modularity, or, indeed, certain versions of MG like the "radical derivational" one in Epstein et al.
Pike, whose tagmemics
(first formulated in 1948) represents the most important syntactical system besides distributionalism and Chomsky's generative grammar, is given full treatment by Costello (pp.
Following the tradition of tagmemics
, I call them etic grids.
As composition and rhetoric began to take shape as a field, language-level strategies like sentence-combining, tagmemics
(Young, Becker, and Pike), and generative rhetoric of the sentence (Christensen) flourished briefly and then vanished under the weight of the growing emphasis on process-focused writing (Emig; Murray) and the somewhat later attention to cognitive approaches (Bereiter and Scardamalia; Flower and Hayes).
