By Antoine Culioli

To push things a bit one could say that using an SRµ is language. Language activity, hence languages, has the poten­ tial of being used for metalinguistic purposes. However, one must exit a lan­ guage before using it metalinguistically. Secondly we might find a use for symbols — abbreviations of categories that are simply classifications.

For example: Paul - lentils - eating I establish a relationship and a specification. In so doing I construct a rep­ resentation but it is not lexicalized. It can be: it is true, it is probable, he fre­ quently does, it's disgusting, it will do him some good... We have the pos­ sibility of constructing an object detached from reality, for example: the fact 36 COGNITION AND REPRESENTATION IN LINGUISTIC THEORY that, the idea that, the hope that ... Paul eats some lentils .... If I do not con­ tinue, we cannot know whether the process has been instantiated or not.

If we look at the other activity's structuring of praxes (stabilized behav­ iour, having a certain regularity — such as a sequence of gestures to produce a transformation), the same holds. So the first danger, as we have seen, is general semantics and all it entails. The second aspect is dealing with entirely constituted units. ).
