Subject: Linguistic vs non-linguistic knowledge


Is linguistic knowledge distinguishable from non-linguistic knowledge?

I realise this question may be a tad dull to all but the most ignorant of
linguists as I am. However, I am not from the linguistic field and I am finding
it difficult going about answering this question.

A colleague suggested the question is asking for a Whorf-Sapir Hypothesis
answer? My reply illustrated my ignorance, "Who?What?"

I would be grateful for any suggestions and/or references.

I can't subscribe to this network so if you have any suggestions please
reply to my email:

Thanks I look forward to hearing from anyone out there with any suggestions...

Ian

Can anybody point me in the direction of any discussions on unpacking
secondary articulations, especially prenasalisations of voiced
obstruents? I appear to have productive unpacking in Roviana
(Oceanic) as part of reduplication and compounding, but the only
recollection I have of unpacking was from under-grad days where
unpacking got about a sentence in introductory texts as being
sporadic and rare.
