Author Item Summary Meta data
Hintikka I 264
Language Learning/Language Acquisition/Wittgenstein/Hintikka: when we teach a child a word, we teach a new behavior - e.g. new pain behavior: to make use of the word "pain". The word replaces the crying and does not describe it. The use is not based on criteria, nor on crying.
II 159
Language Learning/Language Acquisition/Colour/Rules/Game/Wittgenstein: if the child confuses the colour words, it has not understood the game, it has broken the rules. If it does not guess the weather correctly, it has made a mistake.
These two cases behave to each other like playing chess without observing the rules on the one hand, and playing chess and losing on the other.
II 204
Language/Learning/Language Learning/Language Acquisition/Augustinus: said he learned Latin by learning the names of things.
Wittgenstein: let's assume someone learned the language that way. That would be a complete language. Because when we look at it we cannot see that something is missing.
VI 143
Training/Language Learning/Wittgenstein/Schulte: when a technique is strange to us, we cannot even ask the right questions. Once the use is established it can no longer be questioned. Training: we do not learn any number of basic colors. Non-linguistic is a prerequisite for the understanding of the linguistic.
