In the Dutch tradition, education and research on Dutch has been divided into three main areas: linguistics, literary studies, and (roughly: applied linguistics, text linguistics). Of these three, the latter is arguably the least visible in public domain, in spite of the fact that it has an important message to tell. We can diagnose the problems underlying this fact. First, the fact that is directly applicable and has been succesfully applied in many domains, gives its incentives to its practitioners to participate in the public debate. Second, the international success of the field makes the gap between the findings and a lay audience wider.
