By John Robert Stewart

This e-book analyzes the well-liked view that language is essentially a approach of symptoms and logos; outlines another that builds on elements of the philosophies of Heidegger, Gadamer, Buber, and Bakhtin; and employs this replacement to criticize bills of language built by way of V. N. Volosinov, Kenneth Burke, and Calvin O. Schrag. From the point of view of verbal exchange concept, this publication extends a few gains of the postmodern critique of representationalism to strengthen a post-semiotic account of the character of language as dialogic.

12 Prior to these early instances of language scholarship, Chinese, Phoenician, and Aztec cultures had also employed various forms of written script.  It opened the door to language analysis and speculation that moved far beyond practical applications.  In this way the initial conserving impetus of language scholarship led to efforts that were fundamentally representational: letters of the first alphabet were designed to represent certain distinguishable phonemes.  In addition, facial expressions and kinesic, proxemic, haptic, and chronemic features were also outside the scope of the alphabetic representation system, even though these elements were undoubtedly as important in ancient communicative experience as they are today.

I propose, in sum, that language can fruitfully be treated first and foremost as event, not as system; that this event embodies the distinctive dynamic of human being, which is understanding; that this ongoing process of understanding via languaging is the human's way of constituting world; that this understanding occurs in contact between persons, which is to say that the event is irreducibly dialogic; and that this understanding in contact is articulate, which means that it both accomplishes differentiation and occurs paradigmatically as oral­aural contact.
