Mr. Lance,

Your question is very astute. It is the question, "Did cognition

predicate language, or language, cognition?" It would seem that is a

question that psycholinguists and philosophers have been trying to tackle for

a few years now, and it is still a contaversy.


Zen Master Dae Seung Sunim has a nice clear answer to the quandary: "Only go

straight, don't know."

Just this.
