Spoken language conveys multiple messages simultaneously. In addition to conveying a 'regular' linguistic message, utterances convey information about the people who produce them. This includes information about their identity (are they older, gay, and liberal [like me]?), and their state of mind (are they angry? what is their attitude toward the topic being discussed?). Part of learning language means learning how to convey these different pieces of social information.
