Title Development and formation of language substance
Author(-s) Levitsky Yu.A.
Abstract Language is characterized by its substance and its form. The substance consists, on the one hand, of sounds and on the other, of concepts - psychological and logical. In the beginning some indefinite sound appears which is connected with some vague general notion. The development of sound substance is realized as gradual growth of the number of sounds, the development of mental substance as gradual dividing of the general notion into its components. The form is understood as a specific of each language way of combining the two substances. W. von Humboldt defined that specific way as the inner form of a language.
Keywords substance of language, ideas, concepts, internal form of language
