Linguistic Meaning from the Language Acquisition Perspective

Abstract

From a plausible cognitive hypothesis explaining how little children develop complex meaning structures, we come to the conclusion that linguistic meanings are planned. The plans, we call them discourse plans, are tree-like structures composed of primitive situations and establishing referential links between the situations and the context. Linguistic meanings are second order Lambda-terms derived through conversion from homomorphic images of realizable discourse plans.
