    Language is an Instrument for Thought. Really?Jan Nuyts - 2012 - Pragmatics and Cognition 20 (2):317-333.
    This discussion article addresses the assumption formulated in Dan Everett's new book Language: The Cultural Tool that language is not only an instrument for communication, but also an instrument for thought. It argues that the latter assumption is far from obvious, and that, in any case, one cannot put communication and thought on a par in discussing the functionality of language.

    The Intentional and the Socio-Cultural in Language Use.Jan Nuyts - 1994 - Pragmatics and Cognition 2 (2):237-268.

It is argued that these arguments do not affect the assumption that intentions are always (...)
