The Role of Language in Human Conflict: Prolegomena to the Investigation of Language as a Factor in Conflict Causation and Resolution.
Chilton, Paul A.
Current Issues in Language and Society, v4 n3 p174-89 1997
Discusses how, to what degree, and with what causal force are language, communication, and discourse bound up with conflict and conflict resolution. Theorists of international relations have been interested in role played by language in such discourse. Reviews distinctions between "language" (the universal human capacity), a "language" (in modern state system, a product of political, often nationalist forces), "communication" (modalities of linguistic interaction), and "discourse."
