In this contribution, I argue that the two aims Carel Jansen proposes, are incompatible. A research agenda dominated by questions derived from practical problems will lead to a body of largely isolated insights and unrelated knowledge. Such an incoherent knowledge base is insufficient to provide an enrichment of the school subject Dutch language. A more theory guided research agenda eliciting and guiding empirical research that meets high standards of ecological validity could lead to such a knowledge base.
