Thought and Language
A variety of different authors, theories and fields purport influences between language and thought. Psychologists attempt to explain the emergence of thought and language in human evolution. There are two bodies of thought forming around this debate. Lingualism, which claims that there is no thought without language [ citation needed ] and denies the intelligibility of any kind of thought whatsoever in the absence of language. The main use of language is to transfer thoughts from one mind, to another mind. The bits of linguistic information that enter into one person's mind, from another, cause people to entertain a new thought with profound effects on his world knowledge, inferencing, and subsequent behavior.

Lev Vygotsky language development
Developmental Approaches to the Self pp Cite as. Since Vygotsky never wrote about the self or its development, his contributions to such issues lies in the way he formulates the relationships between consciousness, language, cognition, and emotions. We will show how his semiotic and functionalist psychology is the starting point for a unified and dialectical theory of subjectivity. This theory is about how language creates new functional connections between psychological processes and thereby changes consciousness. Therefore one cannot understand any particular aspect of development, be it play, motivation, or egocentric speech and inner speech, without seeing its place in his overall developmental theory.
