An interesting application of role theory to studies of functional styles is proposed and implemented by K. A. Dolinin with special reference to French stylistics (Dolinin 1978). We shall examine below more specifically some aspects of role theory in connection with some theoretical problems of sociolinguistics. At this point it should be noted that while disagreeing with symbolic interactionists when they reduce the entire problem of man's social behaviour to the problem of com municative behaviour on the basis of the neobehaviourist theory of social in teraction that regards the structure of social relations as a structure of com munication and symbolic interaction among people (for a critique of this con ception see Parygin 1967, 30-39), Soviet sociolinguists, just as Soviet socio logists, seek to make use of the rational elements contained in that theory.

Thus it is clear to everyone from the sequence of sentences in a child's story (The baby cried.
