language or thought first?
    #4266545 - 06/07/05 03:29 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

do the words you use influence how you think about things? or is language an expression of thought?

Who cares. Language is just a medium for transmitting once set of data to another, and things are expressed. It takes its own form, to whatever is relevant.

Maybe i should explain, why I ddont care. Language now, seems so mangled, and mixed.

In our language, where is the meaning in the words, where do the words come to meaning.

In our language, cultures absorb words, words absorb cultures, and they effect one another.

This crazy, trade off, in our world, makes me go crazy, i prefer to know things, for what they are... and the words, they dont say, they never can.

Thats why I dont care anymore, when i can find the wwords and thoughts as they reflect one in one, then maybe it will make a difference.

as organisms, probably thought was first.


The words you use influence how you think about things, language is an expression of thought.

I personally am here to understand language. i think that must be my purpose in life.
