Overview for An Analysis of Human Language: A Comparative Study
This bokk attempts to reconcile the functional periphery of human language as manifested by Eastern and Western linguists. Various Indian grammarians over time have uncovered the extremely complicated rules of grammar of a language,-a path which the wastern philosophers have tried to explore of late.
The author explores the various points of similarities as well as differences as envisaged in Bhartrhari and Chomsky's experimentation with role of language. An in-depth analysis of the syntactical and semantic aspects of language by the two philosophers is also attempted to establish the relationship between functionality of language and its relation with the construction of human identity.
The study entails a multidisciplinary approach involving the branch of human psychology, anatomy and physiology with that of philosophy. A study of this book will open up avenues of research traversing new trajectories in the field of functional potentiality of human language.
