From Sensorimotor Categories to Grounded Symbols s.n.
Available under License Other.
Once you can produce and understand a proposition at all, you can produce and understand any and every proposition. Propositions are all statements about category membership. So once you have made the transition from purposive pantomime to truth-valued propositions you have the full power of language to define, describe and explain any category at all: the full power of symbolic instruction, just as long as it is grounded, like the kernel of all dictionaries, in sensorimotor induction. In the beginning was the category; with propositions came the word.
