Real Time Imaging of the Rotation Mechanism Producing Interview-Based Language Spaces.
This article advances the bio-kinetic hypothesis that the complexity and nonlinear dynamics of language can be approached on the basis of the Agent-action-Objective (AaO) paradigm. It is shown that the derived AaO units rotate and that AaO-governed rotations include functions that can be imagined in real time, provided that a dot marking the state of a rotating string, can be attached to the string. In using filled and unfilled dots, it is demonstrated that the stepping function of the discovered rotation mechanism is working within single AaO units. Through imaging the orientation of the dots on a sliding plane, it has been possible to demonstrate sliding over the A- and the O-domain and to measure quantitatively the involved state changes. The experimental results are based on two samples. The first consists of an interview expression, that originally was produced in Swedish. The other sample relates to the translation of the original text into English. On the basis of this material, it is demonstrated that a system of AaO units has the capacity to keep track of rotations and to assemble textual elements that temporarily fit into the structure, developed for a particular task.
