British Theatre
Britain has a long and rich dramatic tradition. The two national companies, the National itself which stages a wide range of modern and classical plays and the Royal Shakespeare company, which is performing in Stratford-upon-Avon, and in London, are the society hostesses of drama, elegant and sophisticated but isolated from the rest of the British theatrical world by their prestige.
British theatre has become more cosmopolitan in outlook, with the World Theatre seasons that started in London in 1964, and more receptive to influences
from abroad. Whatever other changes have taken place over the past years, the theatre in Britain has gained in diversity.
A clear division has emerged between established theatre practice, whether commercial or subsidized, and what is called its «Fringe», the experimental, mostly small-scale activity that is free, or almost free, from financial and conventional restraints.
Contemporary British playwrights who have received recognition at home and overseas include Harold Pinter, Tom Stoppard and some others. Of all the many dramatists now writing for the English theatre, there is one who has occupied a dominant position ever since the late fifties, namely Harold Pinter. His work is particularly hard to assess, though it must be noted that he is one of that small company of writers whose name has been turned into an adjective which seems to sum up some common element in our experience. It is those situations when language is used without communicating, when one misunderstanding leads on to another, when no one listens to what anyone else is saying, that is described as «Pinteresque». It is part of Pinter's achievement. He remains concentrated on problems of communication; on how far a small group of people can convey anything to each other, whether by words or silences or gesture. Pinter's achievement points the way towards the future; he has shown that it is possible to combine the poetic imagery, the open construction of the Theatre of the Absurd with techniques, which do not deviate too much from the mainstream of the tradition of drama. «The Caretaker» (1960), a disturbing but funny play, first established Pinter as a major talent.
Considerable interest is shown at present for the professional arts festivals which take place each year. The Edinburgh International Festival featuring a wide range of different arts is the largest of its kind in the world.

Language Typology
Language families should not be confused with the quite separate classifications of languages by reference to their sharing certain predominant features of grammatical structure. Such classifications give rise to what are called typological classes.
Grammatical structure has things in common in all known languages, particularly at the deeper levels of grammar. All known languages have words or wordlike elements combined in accordance with rules into sentences; all known languages distinguish in some way nounlike and verblike sentence components; and all known languages have the means of embedding or subordinating one sentence within another as an included clause (e. g., «Joan was playing tennis» and «Joan twisted her ankle»: «Joan, who was playing tennis, twisted her ankle», or «while she was playing tennis, Joan twisted her ankle»).
Languages exhibit various types of structure. This can most readily be seen by comparing the relations between the forms of words and their syntactic functions in different languages. Such a comparison is the basis of three broad types of language that have been distinguished since the beginning of the 19th century. They are, in fact, more like characteristics than types, in that most languages contain traces of all three, in different proportions.
