The picture theory of language, suggests that words are arranged around what might be called a 'moment.' A mind chooses which words best reflect the 'moment,' it then gives structure, or grammar, to the words before an utterance is issued by the vocal chords. A picture however will never be fully embraced by the sentence or sentences uttered.
The picture, or the photograph, or the painting, or the
drawing, will contain considerably more information than maybe a hundred
thousand long drawn out and interminable sentences. And perhaps it's
easier for me to think of the language device as it developed in us people
as something like a feather. It identifies, it denigrates, it camouflages,
conceals, it comforts, it warms and has enabled us to fly through pictures we
might never have actually seen.
