Some thoughts on the foundations of the theory of language use

Linguistics and Philosophy 3 (1):1 - 17 (1979)
I identify three functions of language: the communicative, the objectifying, and the objective. I claim that of these three functions, the objective function is the most essential, in the sense specified in the paper, and the communicative the least. I further indicate that language use without the communicative function is more prevalent than might commonly be believed.
