A science of services is contingent on descriptive and normative theoretical contributions. This dissertation investigates the appropriateness of the language-action framework as a theoretical source for web services, the technological component of a science of services. Web service supports interoperability among applications independent of their platform, through a set of standards. Current web service efforts are hindered by complexities created by the proliferation of standards which are

These complexities can be managed by developing boundaries for each web service aspect and new design methodologies and principles that are tailored towards web services. The Language-Action Perspective (LAP) is a candidate theoretical perspective for addressing these concerns because it follows the basic premise of web services-supporting communication among disparate applications to achieve business goals.
