Watching our black lab dreaming last night made me wonder was he "thinking".Made me question is there any real thought (or consciencious) without language ? We think "outloud" ??? Had "thought ???" that brain is a complex yet essentially efficient piece of machinary.Any thought processes would need a language and if so why would we use two languages ?Creating a layer of unneccessary processing?(ie think in "natural/given language convert to mother tongue language and back again to process! not efficient???) Had a quick search on Google and low and behold my "thought" has a name ?? (Sort of) Linguistic Determinism has been with us since 50`s .(If it real its always been with us) Without language no thought;without thought no consciencious.? Action without thought instinct and conditioning. Yes we see in our minds eye but we "colour in" (even join the dots ?) with language. Or do we ???
