Abstract

To tell the truth avoiding ambiguity, it is necessary to link accurate information to words of the language. In language learning, a perceptual element is present at the origin and accompanies the use of introduced expressions. This element constitutes a sort of connec- tion with reality, making efficient communication between speakers possible. In the fol- lowing phases, the language is at the service of diverse needs, the connections and the original information are dispersed in a complex communication network in which, as they say, the anchor points have a peripheral position. What we want to focus on is a particular use, the assertive, for which in some cases a phylogenetic relationship can be traced with ‘primitive’ uses (such as: ‘look!’, ‘This is a ...’ ...). We would like to discuss from a philo- sophical point of view the information and the ability (competence) necessary to use ex- pressions indicatively.
