Chapter 6, Slide A - Language Differences
A. Definition of "Language"
- A set of arbitrary symbols that represent experience.
- Arbitrary -not based on rules or intrinsic natures, existing at random or occurring by chance.
- Symbols -something that stands for something else, not the event itself.
- Experience -every thought, feeling or event an individual encounters.
- Every person's language is different, because every person has different experiences.
