Introduction Despite the large number of register studies that have been completed to date, there is still need for a comprehensive analytical framework. Such a framework should clearly distinguish between linguistic and nonlinguistic characterizations, and it should allow a classification of registers using both types of information. Hymes has argued that sociolinguistics should make "the systematic study of verbal repertoire" rather than "language" the "central scientific notion" (1984:4445), and he has made repeated calls for taxonomic frameworks: We need taxonomies of speaking and descriptions adequate to support and test them.
A comprehensive framework should permit a complete situational characterization of individual registers, as well as a precise specification of the similarities and differences among registers. , purpose, field, tenor, and mode). That is, since these parameters have an undetermined set of possible values, they do not allow a precise characterization of individual registers. In addition, open-ended parameters cannot be used to specify the extent of similarities and differences across registers. Since registers "can be identified at any delicacy of focus" (Halliday 1988:162), this is an important concern.
