Meaning without Rules: Language as Experiential Identity

Donald V. Poochigian

Abstract



Meaning can occur in a circumstance and not again. Meaning occurring in a
circumstance and again is a rule. Language being a rule, meaning can occur
without language. Elements occurring sequentially and again are observationally
indistinguishable from same elements occurring neither sequentially nor again.
Occurring sequentially and again or not constitutes different meaning of same
elements, linguistic meaning attributed, not intrinsic. Meaning is the
unperceivable abstraction of identity, and language is a set of identities.
Linguistic identities can be axiomatic or analogic. Analogic, linguistic rules
are defeasible ex post facto generalizations, not indefeasible a priori
definitions, contradictions identifying evolutionary pathways.
