Excerpt: I shall try to formulate criterial characteristics of the phenomenon we have in mind when we use the term “language,” and then to suggest how those criteria might be applied to determine whether or not a given organism is using a linguistic system of communication. I would like to point out that, although language also plays an important role in the cognitive development and functioning of individual organisms, we shall be concerned here only with its communicatory function.
