Sect. 1. The elements of language --
1.1. Signing (the arbitrary nature of language symbols with Sequels re visual signs, intonation and stress, and signing by people whose hearing is impaired) --
1.2. We're Only Human (significant features of human communication, with particular reference to structure dependence and a Sequel looking at this through poetry) --
1.3. Knowing the Rules (dispelling anxiety about the rules of syntax and morphology and also looking at the nature of linguistic knowledge in Chomskyan terms) --
