Language and Meaning

by Ernest Horn - 1942

Within the broad area thus delimited, the present discussion will deal primarily with the attempts of students to make and express constructs through language. However, the writer does not mean to deny that the student is influenced by other signs, such as those sometimes referred to as natural signs, functioning with or without verbal associations. The illustrations which are utilized in the discussion are drawn chiefly from reading in relation to learning in the social studies, first; because of the considerable body of evidence which is available, and second, because these constructs illustrate so well the function, limitations, and social nature of language symbols. Many of the problems here dealt with are closely related to those treated by Brownell in his chapter on problem solving.
