1. What Language Is
Language allows us to "store information and carry out thought
processes". It is a representational system, by which we organize
and categorize the world we perceive.
There is a sudden jump in communicative complexity from apes to humans.
Words combine infinitely to express thoughts beyond the present.
Thought (as we know it) depends on language.
