Know What I Mean?
Kryston, Victor, Ed.; Meares, Portia, Ed.
This book explores the question of how we know what we know. The articles, essays, pictures, and practical exercises focus on language, meaning, and the ways in which we communicate. The book is divided into six major divisions: the representative function of words and language; cultural attitudes, values, and assumptions inherent in any given language; the nature of understanding and the self-reflexive quality of words; body language and communicative processes; the implications of electronic and technological change for our information environment--the medium and the message; and the concept of a language for computer programing. Of general interest to all students of language and meaning, this book is of specific use for advanced high school and beginning college instruction. (Author/LG)
