An article entitled “Communication-cognition ‘Butterfly’ (Geometrical Model of Verbal Communication in Case of Ambiguity) by Ilham Taghiyev, Khazar University teacher, was published in the International Journal of Language and Linguistics.
The author maintains that the traditional semantic triangle merely explains the relationship between sign, concept and referent and describes how the received linguistic signs are decoded, but it fails to demonstrate the process of communication which is the main function of human language. The author suggested a new geometrical model of communication-cognition process in case of linguistic ambiguity. Thus, the geometrical shape suggested by the author and dubbed “Communication-cognition ‘butterfly” includes both the source and recipient of the linguistic signs and demonstrates the communication-cognition process in case of ambiguity.
