Coming together through general language.
How do you know if your text is written in general language or not? A text is written in general language if all members of the same language community understand it, and if, in order to understand the text, it does not require specialist knowledge in a certain field. To some extent, general text types may include certain subject matters or areas, but they do not require specific knowledge within the subject matter or area. Usually, it does not require much research when translating a general text and generally, these text types do not require specific vocabulary.
