Verbal Cues of Organizational Information in Message Decoding: An Integrative Approach to Linguistic Structure.
Okby, Mamud M.
This discussion of verbal communication seeks to bring a new "unity" and order into the study of linguistics, to make linguistics truly an interdisciplinary science, and to communicate more effectively with the outside world, peopled by those who do not speak linguistic jargon. The particular linguistic problem here is an exploratory psycholinguistic study of correlations between verbal and conceptual structures in language, consisting of an investigation of the verbal cues of organizational information and the corresponding operations of sequential structure utilized in the encoding-decoding process. The basic assumptions underlying the study are that language can profitably be examined with respect to its characteristics as a unified form of behavior and that a psycholinguistic interpretation of the notion of grammar is needed to account for transformation between the structures of content and of expression. The two-part discussion covers hypothetical, analytic, and synthetic considerations. (Author/VM)
