In this brief response to Hasan's critique of Bourdieu, we selectively address three issues: 1. We discuss Hasan's critique of Bourdieu's view of language as excluding the semologic, in terms of his epistemology of constructivist structuralism; 2. We discuss Hasan's view of the co-genetic relationship between the semologic and the sociologic in terms of a conception of practice as articulation; 3. We address the issue of social change, as discussed by Hasan.
