So I motion for him to come over, and they whip across the road, and I got out the car, walked over there, and said to this deputy “This guy behind me is either sick or he's drunk, but he's got a problem. ” So they started down there. And as soon as he sees me get out of the car and walk over there to the police car ... the guy stops way far away from the intersection. He stops, and he throws his car into reverse, and starts backing up. Page 26 75 80 When the cops went down there to check him out, he starts backing up going backwards down that road ...

In other words, pragmatics handles individual variation by giving all discourse features, whether widely used or once­used, the same status, as relatable by rule to shared conventions.  If language is viewed in this way, then what an individual happens to do with language in any given instance is not central to the concerns of students of language.
