In spoken and even more

In spoken and even more in written language the separation of form and meaning is much clearer and in situations of multilingual communication the arbitrariness of the relation between form and meaning is becoming obvious and conscious for all speakers. In writing praxis the discretizations of words and the combinatorial nature of word- word and sentence formation becomes accessible to consciousness. Partially it is a product of the writing technique and not primarily a feature of natural languages; this means that with the invention of writing a cultural bifurcation between spoken and written languages took place and the correspondent language awareness due to writing began to dominate linguistic theorizing. 22

The phase of „pure meaning“ meaning Finally with the rise of mathematics (Euclid may be considered as a first climax) the stage of “pure meaning” (Cassirer ( Cassirer: : “reine “ reine Bedeutung”) Bedeutung”) is reached. Ideally the arbitrariness of natural languages is overcome and a universal language is created which reflects perfectly the architecture of thinking hidden by linguistic forms. This is a dream articulated by many authors in the 17th century, when the global language of erudition, Latin, was replaced by national languages. Port Royal logics were announced as an art of thinking and Leibniz formulated his “Characteristica “ Characteristica universalis” universalis” which was not only conceived as a universal tool for the expression of knowledge , it should even allow the finding of new knowledge. 23
