"Insects Are Free": Reflections on Meaning in Linguistics.
Catford, J. C.
Language Learning, v33 n5 p13-32 1983
Maintains that in spite of obvious interest in language by those in other disciplines, it is a mistake for linguists to assume others have special insight into the nature of language and meaning which is denied to linguists. Furthermore, a general theory or set of principles relating to meaning for linguistics can only be arrived at by linguistics themselves. (SL)
