A slightly corrected version of the 'boson representation' of fermions in the Luttinger model (that avoids the alpha to 0 limit) is used to obtain explicitly the lowest-order interactions between charge- and spin-density waves in the generalised model that includes backscattering. This is in contrast to the decoupling of these degrees of freedom reported by Luther and Emery. Instead, the results obtained by these authors are identified as applying to a model with long-range coupling between spin densities at different points.
