|Language Rules||I 3
Speech patterns/language device/terminology/Millikan: I mean words with these, syntactic forms, stress, accents, punctuation, etc.
Thesis: such patterns are handed-down only because stable open and covert reactions of a cooperation partner are just as much handed down (they have asserted themselves).
Standardization/Millikan: the (speech-) pattern only performs its eigenfunction with a cooperation partner, but with an arbitrary one. Therefore, it must be standardized.
Stabilization/Millikan/(s): (temporary) for recurring tokens there must be a similarity to previous ones.
Stabilization/standardization/Millikan: stabilization and standardization are two sides of a medal.
