Abstract: A large number of language functions cannot readily be predicted simply by a consideration of their forms. There are a relatively limited number of language forms that are utilized by an infinite number of complex communicative functions involved in human linguistic interaction. The gap that exists between language forms and functions is bridged by contextual factors including speaker/listener cooperation, shared knowledge, intonation, conventional social norms and others. These factors help speakers communicatively bridge the correspondence gap between form and function and help give otherwise ambiguous forms their functionally intended meaning. In the first section of this article the author has made a summary of the arguments of the various approaches to the analysis of discourse on the issue of linguistic form and function. In the final sections the author has chosen a sample of spoken text and commented on examples, which demonstrate that the functions are not predictable from linguistic forms used by the interlocutors.
