Speech

Speech
   1) The Speech Units of the Child Stand for Sentences
   The speech units of the child belong to no single class of words because they are (i.e. stand for) not single words but sentences. (Lorimer, 1929, p. 94)
   2) Speech Can Block Clear Thinking
   Often we have to get away from speech in order to think clearly. (Woodworth, 1938, p. 809)
   3) The Origin of Speech
   The homoiothermal [warm-blooded] organism generates the need for communication. It is, in energy or thermal needs, analogous to what will be common speech, in terms of signals and information. I imagine that one of the first forms of behavior, like one of the first signals, may be reduced to this: "keep me warm." (Serres, 1982, p. 76)
