Language is not merely verbal. Nonverbal signs and interpretations not only contribute to language, but in fact compose the structure of language itself. Horst Ruthrof delves into the nonverbal facets of language, such as olfactory, gustatory, aural, visual and tactile readings. Proposing reclamation of the body as an integral part of language, this book argues against structural linguistics and post-Saussurean theories. To support his standpoint, Ruthrof draws on the writings of Peirce, Husserl, Heidegger, Wittgenstein, Derrida, and Helen Keller, and on recent research in cognitive science, cognitive linguistics, and cognitive rhetoric.
