Skupien, Janet
Language & Communication, v17 n1 p1-17 Jan 1997
Presents accounts of theories locating the sources of the signifying capacities of words in their imbrication with nondiscursive structures and practices. Points out that a tradition of philosophical, linguistic, and semiotic theorizing has attempted to clarify what it is for words to have the meanings they do in terms of the relation of linguistic expressions to the underlying concepts they express.
