Time to take this seriously.
The purpose of this essay is to demonstrate that John's was a maverick Christian group and that the nature and quality of this group can be seen in the nature and quality of the language used in the Gospel. By employing insights from speech accommodation theory, antilanguage perspectives, and the sociolinguistics of intimacy, one can establish the general lines of the Johannine association that might assist in a more adequate interpretation of this Gospel.
