AU Cass 12
Language/structural coupling/psychological/social systems/Luhmann: language is here the mechanism of structural coupling. - Language: twice: a) mentally - b) communicative -
1. Also, foreign languages, are easily distinguishable from meaningless noise. - Language draws attention to itself - and not to the meaning!
2. Language fixes meaning. - (> Storage, transport) - Because language is structural coupling, it is not a system. - Language does not have an own operational way - so no linguistic operation which would not be communication or non-linguistic thinking. - language itself is not communication. - one needs a few participants and an understanding.

AU Cass 12
Language/Luhmann: that it also has aspects of action (e.g. trigger opposition), is a secondary phenomenon. - Operation: The appropriate language operation is communication or comprehending sense.
