1923: Note Malinowski's essay about the Trobrianders
==== 1923 ====
* ''The Meaning of Meaning: A Study of the Influence of Language upon Thought and of the Science of Symbolism'' by [[C. K. Ogden]] and [[I. A. Richards]] is published, drawing the sustained attention of Prussian-American anthropologist and linguist [[Edward Sapir]]. JCB said that this book provided "one of the cornerstones on which to rest the structure of [[primitive]]s in Loglan." More specifically, he attributes the separation of the "cognitive" and the "emotive" components of meaning facilitated by [[attitudinal]]s to this work. The book included a supplemental essay by anthropologist [[Bronisław Malinowski]], ''The Problem of Meaning in Primitive Languages'', in which he discussed challenges of interpreting the language of the [[Trobrianders]] given the fusion of cultural assumptions and grammatical notions.
