  • Product Description
 

In Chomskyan (Cartesian) linguistic philosophy, the human faculty of language is ultimately postulated to be a species-specific biological ‘organ’ which is primarily ‘designed for elegance, not for use’. In search of such elegance, and by proceeding beyond the current generative epistemology, this book aims to show that if language is ontologically 'a real object of the natural world’, it can no more be defined with regard to Aristotelian tradition, namely, language as ‘sound with meaning’. In this sense, English, Swahili or other 7,103 known living socio-cultural spoken languages in the world cannot instantiate the real concept of ‘natural language’. Hence, what IS language?
