Can mere phonemes be components of Millikan's substance concepts?

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (1):83-84 (1998)
Abstract
In presenting her attractive theory of concepts, Millikan makes an unwarranted assumption about the role of language in concept acquisition. The phoneme string, rather than the “word” as a semantic entity, may suffice to play the crucial role in the acquisition of substance concepts. Hence Millikan may underestimate the degree of similarity between language and other media of perception.
