Later chapters analyze symbolic speech (communication by nonlinguistic means) as the key to developing an intention-based theory of speech

Later chapters analyze symbolic speech (communication by nonlinguistic means) as the key to developing an intention-based theory of speech. The essential elements of the theory are (1) nonnatural meaning, (2) the signaling of intent, (3) the recognition of intent, and (4) establishing a convention. A final chapter applies these insights to the case law of symbolic speech and resolves some basic confusions in the legal literature.

Charles Fries begins his analysis with the criticism of the traditional approach to the division of words into parts of speech. He believes that traditional definitions of parts of speech are mainly based on intuition, which has little if nothing in common with scholarly principles. He holds that a native speaker refers words to different parts of speech according to the signals of structural meaning. He arrives at the conclusion that the signals of structural meaning in English consist of patterns of arrangement of classes of words. Due to this fact one does not need to know the lexical meanings of the following words to understand which of them are thing or action words

Charles's law (also known as the law of volumes) is an experimental gas law that describes how gases tend to expand when heated. A modern statement of Charles's law is: When the pressure on a sample of a dry gas is held constant, the Kelvin temperature and the volume will be in direct proportion. This relationship of direct proportion can be written as: So this means: where: V is the volume of the gas, T is the temperature of the gas (measured in kelvins), and k is a non-zero constant.

Meaning in law: a theory of speech. By Charles W. Collier. Oxford University Press. In his engaging new book, Professor Charles Collier de-velops such a theory by exploring the contours of symbolic speech and redefining the proper boundaries of legal protection when conduct and communication meet. He grounds his argument not in legal doc-trine, but by drawing on philosophy and linguistics to develop an in-tention-based theory of speech (p. 115), which he demonstrates through application to controversial cases of symbolic speech, from flag burning to nude dancing.

Despite widespread admiration for the First Amendment's protection of speech, this iconic feature of American legal thought has never been adequately theorized. Existing theories of speech proceed on the basis of legal doctrine and judicial decisionmaking, social and political philosophy, or legal and intellectual history. But these are not the disciplines one would most naturally turn to in analyzing speech. Meaning in Law: A Theory of Speech takes a new and different approach. This book develops a general legal theory of speech on the basis of linguistic theory and thephilosophy of language.The opening chapters retrace the main conceptual stages in the expression of meaning: from natural meaning, through symbolism, to signification. Later chapters analyze symbolic speech (communication by nonlinguistic means) as the key to developing an intention-based theory of speech. The essential elements of the theory are (1) nonnatural meaning, (2) the signaling of intent, (3) the recognition of intent, and (4) establishing a convention.A final chapter applies these insights to the case law of symbolic speech and resolves some basic confusions in the legal literature. This analysis proceeds by way of an original distinction between actual conduct (in the real world) and the "ideal conduct" described in a statute. The former may be described both as communicative andnoncommunicative, while the latter has already been conceptualized as either communicative or noncommunicative. This distinction clears up a major legal quandary: how conduct that counts as communication may nevertheless be regulated or prohibited, without running afoul of the First Amendment's protection of speech.

If you don't fall asleep through his poorly written first chapter, then congrats! You are in store for more senseless dribble!

Following his chain of logic and inferences is like trying to piece together a jigsaw puzzel blindfolded and with no hands. His legal analysis is simply taking other professor's works and then disagreeing with them. Don't be misguided by his snarky quips...he really has no idea what he is talking about. (This is the chapter where its a hypothetical person on a train sneezing and trying not to convey meaning through action)

Later, he takes a theory from one professor, agress with it, attempts to put his spin on it and pass it off as his. (This is the chapter where he believes some speech falls outside the scope of the First Amdt).

Who was the publisher that read this, said "Lets publish this garbage!" and then tried to pass it off as a scholarly piece priced at $95?
