[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.
