Summary/Abstract: For my part in the celebration of Chuck Goodwin’s accomplishments, I return to the past to show the alignment of the 1987 essay to follow with the expansive ideas of context he and Alessandro Duranti put forth in their 1992 book, Rethinking Context. Reading their description of context as inseparable from language and as dynamic was both a starting point and a way forward for my message.
