How to Spell the Meaning of Words.

Introduction to this website

The work I am engaged in originated from the identification of a feature of language that has been overlooked but that seems to have the capacity to provide a new approach to some key questions that are central to linguistics and psychology:

            • what is the nature of word and concept meaning;

            • in what form do they occur in our minds;

            • how are they formed in the brain in ways that make them accessible to our consciousness;

            • how does the mental nature of word meaning arise from the physical substance of the brain; and

            • how do these mental formations refer to things and events in the world.

These questions probe the foundations of language. They have exercised the minds of a many linguists and cognitive scientists but little consensus has been achieved. I venture to believe that my work may help to provide some better explanations than are currently available.
