Mediating between concepts and language - Processing structures
One of the main functions of language is to abstract over complex non-verbal message structures. The language system generates highly compact linguistic material which, however, must still enable the recipient of the corresponding linear grammatical sequence to fully infer the intended message. To guarantee this a device is required which links concepts and grammar in a systematic fashion by negotiating the requirements of both the generalized linguistic structures and the underlying conceptual complexes. Typically, this mediating function is instantiated by an interface. Any interface device has to satisfy procedural requirements because linguistic structure building must accommodate the fact that different types of information are available at different points in time.
