The risks of interdisciplinary efforts are described by Henry Widdowson (Chapter Seven): The conventions of the paradigm not only determine which topics are relevant. They determine too the approved manner of dealing with them: what counts as data, evidence, and the inference of fact; what can be allowed as axiomatic, what needs to be substantiated by argument or empirical proof. The paradigm, therefore, is a sort of cultural construct . . So the way language is conceived by another discipline, informed by another set of beliefs and values (the culture of a different tribe of scholars) tends to be seen as irrelevant, inadmissible, or misconceived.
