Much of what At says is indeed true, but I was looking for a more general
theory of the understanding of language, something like Heidigger's
"Conversations on a Country Path". I think we all know that when we think
about thinking we are no longer thinking straight, but when we talk about
talking it is no longer language that we describe, but the most complex of
our behaviours, human interaction.

I remember the first time I realized that the German verbs dinken and
glauben where not the same thing. Dinken is to think. Glauben is to
believe. I had used them interchangibly because thinking something is
much akin in me to believing it.

So, semantic twists, little subtlties of culture, interculture,
