Language and Dialect

  • Robert McColl Millar


Most of us believe we know what we mean by language. For many, the idea is approached primarily from the experience of learning a foreign language: a set of problems and tasks associated with the acquisition of lexis, phonology and syntax; the end product being (we hope) the ability to communicate in this new code. Awareness of this distinctive system proves to us that we are learning another language.
