The first wave of panic

I’m reading Ch1 of Intro to Sociolinguistics. I’m trying to take notes. I’m trying to focus. I’m trying NOT to think about the other two chapters I have to read or the fact that I might have messed up my work schedule. I get to this sentence…
“Whereas the Chomskyan framekwork focuses on structures that could be generated in language and by what means, the social approach tries to account for what can be said in a language, by whom, to whom, in whose presence, when and where, in what manner and under what social circumstances.”

I had to read that a couple of times to get it through my head. deep breathing. and focus.
