The problem of the meaning of words based upon observation of aphasic patients
The problem of the meaning of words is one of the most discussed and most important problems of the psychology of language. It seems to be a very simple matter when we name an object or when we say "that is a table, that is green," etc. There seems to be an external connection between a sound and an object, but this is not frequently true. The name can also represent something quite different.
