There is little hope of reconstructing by means of comparative or
typological studies a lingua adamica essentially different from
present-day languages. The distant preverbal past is however still
present in live speech. Phonetic, syntactic and semantic rule
transgressions, far from being products of a deficient output, are
governed by a universal iconic apparatus, a sort of 'anti-grammar' or
'proto-grammar' which enables the speaker and the poet to express
preconscious and subconscious mental contents that could not be
conveyed by means of the grammar of any language. Secondary messages,
generated by the proto-grammar are integrated into the primary
grammatical message. The two messages whose structural and semantic
divergence represents a chronological distance of hundreds of
thousands of years, constitute a dialectic unity which characterize
natural languages. The evolutive approach offers a different, perhaps
better understanding of questions related to dynamic synchrony, vocal
and verbal style, poetic language, language change.

Chapters on: Diversity of the lexicon - Dual encoding: vocal style -
Syntactic gesturing - Syntactic regressions - Prosodic expression of
emotions - Poetry and vocal art - Situation and meaning - A hidden
presence: verbal magic - Playing with language: joke and metaphor -
Metaphor: a research instrument - Dynamics of poetic language -
Semantic structure of possessive constructions - Semantic structure of
punctuation marks - Why gestures? - Between acts and words - Language
within language: dynamics, change and evolution.
