Speech behavior as the overcoming of conflict situations

Man's linguistic reality is built on the basis of his speech experience and is a sum of verbal precedents arranged both in a spontaneous (according to a categorical system) and in a purposive way (through education). A distinctive feature of this linguistic reality is its great stability owing to which, on the one hand, mutual communication is possible, while, on the other hand, ready-made verbal forms impose themselves upon principally new, non-linguistic contexts. The discrepancy between actual requirements of a non-linguistic reality and the obsessive old forms of expression may create conflict situations. In order to overcome them the subject has to appropriately direct the intrinsic flows of his productive mental work.
