NOTE: Everything linked here is now out of date. I have since continued my study and have now figured out the root cause of all the problems I see. I am in the process of writing it up to hopefully get some academic attention, for this is purely an academic problem and failure... (Albeit for probably ~2500 years.) (And even if it's also affecting much more than just language.)
A STUDY OF GAMES AS A MATTER OF
*Someone on linkedin (supposedly an 'expert' (a teacher I think) based in Italy) tried to convince me that the type of study I'm doing is consistent with being 'cognitive' linguistics - which is, of course, completely wrong. My study is a matter of linguistics at its most fundamental, in relation to both English and language as a whole.
I'm going to have each post linked to and from here in order to keep everything consistent for ease of use.
Section 1: The Problem With Our Understanding Of The Meaning(s) Of The Word* Game
(Part 7 is intended to be about Relative Time And Space In Relation To An Object (and more - (including 'conjunctions/prepositions')) (when I've finished it.))
(This part will need to be completely re-written after part 7 is completed - it's merely here for reference atm.)
