Language as a means of education

Among different channels and means of education language occupies the most prominent place. Its functions, particularly in relation to interpersonal processes, are analyzed. Main attention is given to the so-called emancipatory function of language specifically instrumental in achieving the primary goal of education - development of a psychologically, socially, and educationally mature person. From this standpoint some new light is shed on relations between language and thought, language and behavior. Learning-education role of contradictions in the instructional material is shown. The article is concluded by the author with introduction of a concept of a "persona linguistica".
