of Conscious Experience in Speaking and Writing

Wallace Chafe demonstrates how the study of language and consciousness together can provide an unexpectedly broad understanding of the way the mind works. Relying on close analyses of conversational speech as well as written fiction and nonfiction, he investigates both the flow of ideas through consciousness and the displacement of consciousness by way of memory and imagination.Chafe draws on several decades of research to demonstrate that understanding the nature of consciousness is essential to understanding many linguistic phenomena, such as pronouns, tense, clause structure, and intonation, as well as stylistic usages, such as the historical present and the free indirect style. While the book focuses on English, there are also discussions of the North American Indian language Seneca and the music of Mozart and of the Seneca people.This work offers a comprehensive picture of the dynamic natures of language and consciousness that will interest linguists, psychologists, literary scholars, computer scientists, anthropologists, and philosophers.

Time may be reflected in text in two ways: the flow of the utterance itself, and the temporal frame referred to in what is said. Both of these basic facts of language may be related to the what goes on in our minds when we talk, to allow for the generation of what is said and for the possibility of temporal displacement of its contents. Chafe explores implications of these facts by examining observed discourse, e.g. in connection with topicality (referents already on our minds). He does not carry out structural formalizations of his suggestions, nor relate them to chronometric studies of language processing, but does have a nice example from the Senecan langugage. His promise of a research program on these topics is left for the future, and for a more enlightened psychology.

A fabulous book about how communication. If it was read by tech writers, I think a lot of tech writing (as well as legal) would be infinitely better. At the root of many of the ideas is how we hear and process things in our brain - it may not be "real" linguistics (although the author is a linguist) but it's really useful.

I think this approach is a link between social psychology and linguistics, the author is a psychologist but his analysis is purely linguistic; a thorough consideration of the elements to consider in analysis that will account for speech and thought, as much as possible in regards to their difference specially in speed.

Excellent source for anything having to do with information flow. Veritably the authoritative work on the subject.

I liked the book, it is enlightening and informative.
It was delivered on the agreed date and in good condition.
But I still have not read it.
I looked in the index and liked the topics.
