The functions of languagem and the understanding of mental disorders // As funções da linguagem e o entendimento das desordens mentais

Indeed, linguistic schizophrenic characteristics seem very different from those related to paranoiac language. Numerous studies on schizophrenic language documents describe an expressive and cognitive universe that is away from the sense and meaning of paranoiac madness. Language, then, becomes the mirror of psychotic experience and interpretation of objective, subjective and intersubjective reality. In this paper, considering characteristics of schizophrenic glossolalia (schizophrenic language use) and considering paranoiac need to rhetorical language (inherently argumentative and persuasive), we'll try to bring out some differences (cognitive, linguistic, psychopathological, ontological) between psychosis schizophrenic and paranoiac ones
