Abstract: This paper is on the refutation of “scientific” notion of creative speaking/hearing subject with zero history a la Chomsky or rather on the falsification of this metanarrative of “ideal” speaker-hearer. The counter-hypothesis, in a nutshell, describes the correlation between empty linguistic organism and human malleability -- that is, creative speaking subject is a myth (in the Bartheian sense of the term). The idea is to investigate the traces of outside sociality in the mental linguistic algorithm as non-contaminated Language Acquisition Device (LAD) does not exist. The author calls this phenomenon as psi-(psycho-social) property of human mind. In this paper, the author wishes to discuss briefly three basic as well as interrelated problems in relation with linguistic cognition in general. The problems are as follows: I. Is there any relationship between “empty linguistic organism” and “social malleability”? Or, what are the effects of socio-linguistic externally to psycholinguistic internally? Do we really have human-object in such a raw state as posited by Chomsky without being constrained or manipulated by the outside sociality? II. What is the matching condition between human cognition and computational algorithm? Or, what is identity in difference (bhedābheda) in computational cognition and human cognition? III. How does we recover perceive and recognize the deleted portion of a sentence or a word when we are perceived sentence?
