Abstract:

Everybody is familiar with language, but this certainly does not mean thateverybody has a sufficient understanding of language. Usually we try toobjectivize our knowledge of language by using terminology. In the process weeasily forget that language can also be concretized revealingly by means ofimages or symbols. This form of objectivization is particularly suitable forgrasping the diverse and pragmatic potential functions of language. Moreover,images can also provide good access to the substructures of our terminology-based knowledge of language.
