Abstract

A contrast is made between academic knowledge (or theory) and street knowledge (or praxis). These kinds of knowledge are represented in relation to each other, and a further dimension, knowledge of knowledge (or meta‐knowledge), is added to a model intended to represent interactions between all three. It is argued that knowledge of these three kinds of knowledge helps those involved in providing information services, and those investigating the sociology of language.
