WithAnn-Marie Brandom
Pages 15

Language is that which we use to communicate to others our needs, ideas, desires, values, stories, opinions or beliefs, and, as such, language is open to interpretation. Language is dependent on its context, on the emphasis given to the particular words used, and even the body language which accompanies human speech. Language communicates by identifying, explaining and expounding what is meant. Religious language is no exception.
