Triangulation: the method of including a second point of view when considering an object, e.g. for determining a distance. In psychology, the interaction of mother and child in the study of language acquisition is observed in the face of an object. The concept of triangulation is essential for understanding the philosophical problem of private language. See also private language, rules, language acquisition.
