This chapter presents ideas and concepts about ‘language’ and ‘reality’. It
establishes certain connections about their relationship – in other words it
‘theorizes’ about what connects ‘language’ and ‘reality’, how words and
worlds are implicated in each other. It achieves this by presenting some
theories which propose certain links between the two concepts and establish
the importance of language in the making of social realities. Theories are, of
course, simply a way of understanding the world and its phenomena and
offer a systematic framework to make sense of the world.
