Preview

The whole of this work is sketched in miniature on the relation between language and thought. Previously, closeups of this terrain were offered in various papers and books, and these were referenced freely. But the main purpose here is to explain the relations among the parts, hoping this can serve as a short introduction to the author’s work on language and thought for some, and as a clarification of the larger plan for others.

Keywords: language; thought; Millikan; evolutionary psychology; concepts; conventions; speech acts
