In particular, the paper looks at the progressive functions of language and illuminates why language is the civilizing factor that delineates man from beast, the emotive from the thoughtless.

From the Paper:

"Language as a conveyor of knowledge also has huge effects upon the physical world. Mankind utilizes language in international communications, enabling people of different cultures and parts of the planet to communicate knowledge and positioning to one another. This relates to the physical world primarily in the realm of labor and war. Each of these industries is regulated by laws and rules, regulatory language, which binds the parties to particular guide-lines as to how they may behave and utilize their physical resources."
