Language Codes and Memory Codes.
Liberman, Alvin M.; And Others
Paraphrase, as it reflects the processes of remembering rather than those of forgetting, implies that language is best transmitted in one form and stored in another. The dual representation of linguistic information that is implied by paraphrase is important for storing information that has been received and for transmitting information that has been stored. Such duality implies a process of recoding that is somehow constrained by a grammar. Grammar is seen as a set of complex codes that relates transmitted sound and stored meaning. This paper considers the construction characteristics of the speech code which unites the acoustic signal for transmission and the phonetic representation appropriate for storage in short-term memory. The speech code in terms of memory research is then considered with speculation on the construction of the memory code. (Author/VM)
