When we need to understand each other.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This is the eighteenth in a series of posts reflecting on our willingness to remember and the quality of that knowledge. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
Speech, what an incredible evolution. I sometimes wonder how speech has evolved. No, but, it’s unbelievable! How to get there even with a minimum of words. A teacher from my past made me aware of the fact that the first words were associated with elements vital to humans. For example, some basic words would come from the sound that things made. I guess we could classify speech into a few categories. Primitive speech, structured speech?
In my case, I believe that a balance is required when we want to associate words with concepts. Another aspect could come from the lack of precision. Finally, we could add diversity in order to create rich speech that allows us to vary the words used to describe an idea, a fact, a situation.
This is where basic knowledge becomes essential. Knowing the level of our interlocutors’ mastery of speech becomes important when we want to convey a message to them. These messages are the basis of our common understanding and social consensus. How can we come to accept others’ movements if we don’t have access to their underlying reasoning?
