Derr, Richard L.
Information Processing and Management, v19 n6 p369-80 1983
Recent developments in cognitive science are assessed as challenge to well established view in philosophy of linguistics that meaning is inherent to language and is relatively fixed. Information provided by words and sentences, language comprehension, constructions of interpretations (not meanings), and arguments against relativism are discussed. Forty-three references are cited.
