Language, Evolution of Consciousness, and the Recovery of Human Meaning.
Barfield, Owen
Teachers College Record, v82 n3 p427-33 Spr 1981
The historical study of words, and particularly of the changes in their meanings, has two benefits. First, it can bring to light our recent and culture-bound perspective on the nature of language, and, secondly, the approach to language needs to be made with a perspective on the future rather than the past.
