Two Functions of Language
Feldman, Carol Fleisher
Harvard Educational Review, 47, 3, 282-93, 77
Author advocates the view that meaning is necessarily dependent upon the communicative function of language and examines the objections, particularly those of Noam Chomsky, to this view. Argues that while Chomsky disagrees with the idea that communication is the essential function of language, he implicitly agrees that it has a function. (Editor/RK)
