I'm in the middle of a programming article, and I don't know if this thing has a name or not.
Lot's of times you can analyse something in isolation. But as soon as you put that thing among other things, you have to analyse the relationships too. For example, if you want to analyse a word individually, you might use morphology, phonetics, and phonology. But if you want to analyse that word in a sentence, you should stick to syntax, intonation, and stuff like that.
What I'm searching for is a title for "things can be analysed both in isolation, and in context, and these analyses are different from each other in approach, and in result."
Do we have a term for that?
