Abstract

Languages are for communication. To know a language is to know how to communicate with it, and this involves two separate, albeit related, capacities. As speakers we must be able to put words to our thoughts, and as hearers we must be able to recognize the thoughts expressed from the words we perceive. Similarly when we express ourselves in writing, or read the writings of others.
