Abstract

Linguistics has treated language as a system, which is based on telementation as Roy Harris calls it. So thought is transferred from one person to another using a fixed code. However, communication accompanies extra-linguistic factors, which are eliminated from a fixed code. So it is not language that makes communication successful. Language is only a part of communication and serves as a medium among people in communities. In other words, words do not have meanings, which are usually thought to be conveyed from one person to another. Therefore, words serve as a medium to convey thoughts from one person to another. Can modern linguistics be ready for seriously considering arguments above? Or can it reject them as wrong ideas?
