[xmca] On the relationship between language and emotion.

Quite simply, the sounds that make up language are expressions of emotions and are emotionally evocative. The use of these vocal sounds, (sounds made by the body), to refer to things establishes a link between the emotions evoked by the sounds and the things referred to by the same sounds. In this way, we are informed subliminally of the affects on us and therefore of the meanings of whatever things we have names for.
