When we get a recursion in the coordination of consensual behaviour, so that there is consensual coordination of behaviour of consensual coordination of behaviour then we have this new phenomenon which is language....."So, we can also say that language is a domain of recursive linguistic co-ordinations of actions, or a domain of second- order linguistic co-ordinations of actions. We human beings also co-ordinate our actions with each other in first-order linguistic domains , and we do so frequently with non-human animals." (1988;p 48).

« Language is recursive coordinated linguistic behaviour; difference between first order linguistic behaviour (among animals) and second order lnguistic behaviour (among humans) »
