A Model for Perception and Language.
Dones, Jose Enrique
The model in this study illustrates a theory of the language user's performance based on an analysis of the fundamental speech episode, the dialogue. The model presents an outline of conditions for the description of strategic aspects of communication within a dynamic framework, which are dependent on the orientation of the communicator toward a finite set of features associated with his perceptual universe. The model attempts to describe those constraints placed on the communicator by certain principles of organization. Linguistic options are best observed within the dynamics of the dialogue, which therefore serves as the basis for description of elementary relations and as an hypothesis regarding the basis of extended maps in discourse. The model also provides a dictionary of terms based on the communicator's motivated activities in decoding and encoding perceptual information. (Author/RN)
