Language and mind

Google+

Gravatar linkNoam Chomsky wrote a book, Language and Mind. Obviously, the website is not to steal the show: however often I do not agree with Mr. Chomsky, he made a book title to be a natural association; human minds have much to do with Authors Den small_logolanguage.

 Cape Good Hope Gravatar shows my websites and work. I also enclose my Authors Den profile and an About page.

Aspect mappingLanguage Mapping: All Englishes have 4 Aspects: Simple, Progressive, Perfect, and Perfect Progressive. We can map these Aspects as parameters, ON, IN, TO, and AT.

You don’t know about me at all,

but if you like that story

about Huck Finn,

we could get along, I guess.

Apples grow

on noses

A human is not going to have pain for bread.

Forbidden progress

with love

Grammar ban on love   makes hate. ;)

How to grind

effective

Talents can turn out mediocre myths.

British grammar

nazis

A primary color may appeal

to the illiterate. ;)

A New People Come

NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM,

says the Great Seal.

No men, women, children,

or houses with the PIE

‘Mother of tongues’ never

named women or men.

Burning the Flag:

where’s the language?

Even if they say,

flags do not speak.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails,

admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, American President

Try something

 Get into the relativity loop.

Larry Selinker’s interlanguage: Emily Dickinson and Mark Twain didn’t have it right?

Larry Selinker says we’re idiosyncratic to learn tongues.

 

Tongue entanglement

Language deserves better than the regard for humanity’s unloved child.

 

Travelers in Grammar

Part One maps the Simple, Progressive, and Perfect tense Aspects as parameters ON, IN, and TO. The student also is introduced to the the Affirmative, the Negative, and the Interrogative.

 

The book is likely to get along with beginners, false beginners,
as well as people simply curious about new approaches to language.

 

Part Two integrates the Simple, Progressive, Perfect, and Perfect Progressive aspects, stative verb use, Modal verbs, and FORM RELATIVITY.

Form relativity is an idea to conciliate the often conflicting guidance that students may get on the Subjunctive, Conditional, or Unreal Past.

The use of the American flag theme on the grammar books covers is to enhance recognition and promotion of American English in language study. The grammar approach is not a temporary design, and flags have been in use for grammar courses in many languages.

  1. Hi and thanks for the comment. You have some thought-provoking views. Language often baffles me. Where on earth did it come from, and who makes the rules?

    • I am an evolutionist with the regard; even if the UFO would come one day (Brits reported sightings, but that’s their MOD ;) or God would thunder from the above (no reports so far on the matter), I’d think language comes from humans: language lives with humans. The fact that there is a dimension to human intellect has been interesting to me.
