Example text

However, this enterprise remains programmatic in the case of spoken variation Ϫ to some extent due to the lack of spoken corpora which reflect not only phonological, but also phonetic transcriptions. Actual language use is a complex affair, involving both spoken and written production, but it is unfortunately only part of the variation in which linguists might take an interest which is detectable when our data are drawn from written texts exclusively. Much structured variation is masked by the use of a standard written variety, and if we reduce our study of a given language to the study of its standard variety as we observe it in the written form, we obtain no more than a partial picture.

Twin Earth resembles earth in all respects, except for the fact that what we call water is represented on Twin Earth by a liquid that has the same appearance and properties as earthly water, but that does not have the chemical composition H2O. Rather, its chemical composition is very complex; it is symbolized by the formula XYZ. Putnam further argues as follows. The expression water has a different extension on earth than on Twin Earth, because the set of molecules referred to by the formula XYZ is distinct from the set of molecules referred to by H2O.

Crucially, Bartsch accepts the semantic flexibility of the language: lower linguistic norms may be breached when the highest norm of communication requires as much. How can new meanings arise at all? Any time a word is used with a new meaning, the given norms of the language are broken, or at least, the lower norms of the language are broken, but the highest norm may still be intact: using a word flexibly with a new nuance may be important precisely because of communicative exigencies. When speakers are expressing new attitudes, evaluations or points of view, when they develop new scientific insights or when they communicate new technical developments, in all of these circumstances the new context may not be easily communicated by remaining with the existing lower norms.
