Duality Of Language

Duality of language pertains to the portrayal of language at two levels: phonology and meaning. Phonology is the systematic arrangement of spoken languages’ sounds and signs (regarding sign language). Meaning is a function of syntax or the set of rules governing sentences' structure and semantics or the study of meaning. For instance, the phonemes “k”, “y”, and “e” have no meaning by themselves but when organized systematically form an understandable “key”. Also, the words “key get the” should be arranged as “get the key” to evoke meaning.
