The Naudé Hypothesis. A tool for Semantic Listening

Excerpt 2017 8 Pages

German Studies - Linguistics

Summary

Newton’s Third Law was written as a foundation for much of the understanding of physics. However, the underlying principal of oppositional forces is applicable to various fields of understanding, including the sociolinguistic understanding of semantics. Ethnic groups, governmental forces, institutions of learning and religion all interact to change language and be changed by language itself. While this is a known fact, documenting or understanding the exact interchange and opposition or interaction between two forces has not been sufficiently explored. To facilitate this exploration, the Naudé Hypothesis provides a simplified basis for the theoretical framework and a linguistic model from which to analyse patterns that result from the oppositional forces of two interacting entities in an attempt to understand the meaning behind meanings- semantics.
