Quine thought that there may not be any form of logic that is entirely independent of language. Thus physicists, mathematicians and logicians use the same human language which they can't jump over, i.e. they are talking to themselves. In other words, all reasoning is done, ultimately, through language. So, following Quine's thought when e.g. people are discussing FOPL or RNG not in Lojban or even in some kind of naturalistic Lojban they might be chasing their own tail.
