Theories of the Interrelation of Speech and Thought

  • A. N. Sokolov
Part of the Monographs in Psychology book series (MOPSY)


The main questions forever arising when the problem of relationship between speech and thought comes up for discussion may be formulated as follows:
  1. 1.

    What is thinking and what is language (or speech)—are they the same or are they two different things?

  2. 2.

    Are thinking and speech always interrelated or is it possible to have thinking without speech and speech without thinking?

  3. 3.

    If thinking and speech are not identical, being only in some way related to each other, what is the role of speech in the thought process?
