How do humans first come to communicate with words?
If someone can think, she can communicate with language
Acquiring a language cannot involve thinking at the outset.
Humans can make the transition from to communicating with language by creating their own language.
Becoming able to communicate with language does not always involve being trained or shown.
What do I know when I can communicate with words?
How do I come to know word-concept mappings?
‘through the exercise of reason’ (Bloom 2001, p. 1103)
Learning words cannot be a route to acquiring concepts.
Is coming to communicate with language essentially a matter of learning or inventing word-concept mappings?
‘What a strange phenomenon that a child can actually learn human language! That a child who knows nothing can start out and learn by a sure path this enormously complicated technique.’
Wittgenstein 1980: 2.24 [§128]
