In a paper I want to write that we need to consider those aspects of semantics and those purposes of extra-linguistic information that are relevant to my paper. I came up with the following:
"Before delving into the matter proper, however, it is essential to consider in some detail the particular aspect of semantics and the purposes of extra-linguistic information, as applied for this paper."
"As applied for this paper" seems a bit odd to me, however. Could a native please proofread whether it is correct or not? Any other suggestions?
It doesn't work; you could say 'applicable to', but 'relevant to' might work better.
