Outline of lecture
What is Language ?

Stored data of written documents or spoken words as in repositories, archives and memories? Modality of communication that serves functions of the body such as effectors, neural networks, brain ?

In any case, the salient feature of the language is its diversity. Compared with the gene information, the diversity of language is excessive. But the identification task ( for example, translation ) is considered relatively easy or possible.

Additionally, Language is simultaneously characterized by both arbitrariness and motivation. In linguistics, two conflicting viewpoints have been generated under the forms of modal-cognitive theory and amodal-computational theory.

The purpose of this course is to understand Language basically, to elucidate the phases of the conflict of viewpoints on Language and to introduce some recent leading works and the main trends in linguistics.
