The Dominion of Language and the Emergence of the Autochthonous Self.
Herold, Arthur L.
Language Learning, v33 n5 p77-98 1983
Presents a rationale for undertaking the study of language. Views this study as a psychological investigation into how the self forms an identity of itself through its language, rather than how it is formed by its language. Thus, the structure of language is seen as a representational system, allowing a multiplicity of meanings. (SL)
