What about the "music" of spoken language? would Gabriel Egan deny
"meaning" to the intonations, inflections, stresses, volumes,
intensities, rhythms and rates of that? Consider the "langue" of
paralinguistics. Also semiotics does indeed precisely allow imagistic,
as opposed to only linear verbal, thinking. My article "Breathing is
Meaning" places meaning squarely in a phenomenological relation to the
individual speaker and hearer.

The deafness of emotional parsimony is the breeding ground of postmodern
irony, not in its surrealism but in its sarcasm.
