Human Language — Physiological Analysis and Phenomenological Interpretation

  • Wilhelm Johann Heinrich Blasius

Abstract

Language is the most important essential human characteristic, distinguishing man from all other living creatures. This statement is based not only on the performance of profound human speakers, as for example the poet reading from his works, a great teacher who develops his experiences and thoughts before his audience, an actor who enthralls by words and their expressions, a speaker calling for action, or a loved one whose feelings impinge on our ear. We also come to this insight through experience with fellow human beings whose speech is disturbed, who have lost the power of speech, or have never possessed it from birth.
