mathematics

Conclusion The (four) positions enumerated in the relation between **mathematics** and grammar mentionned earlierare insufficient. One must consider the intricate relation between the two symbolic forms: language and **mathematics** in order to find relevant ways to elucidate one form with the help of the other. The basic dilemma is, however, that language is an early acquired symbolic form which is in majority sub-conscious sub conscious and its reconstruction with the help of the highly conscious mathematical tools is a dangerous operation involving the transfer from the subconscious to the conscious via a symbolic form which is cognitively and functionally different. 32
