2007 (English)In: Communication-Action-Meaning: A Festschrift to Jens Allwood / [ed] Elisabeth Ahlsén, Göteborg: Department of Linguistics, Göteborg University , 2007, 1, 83-94 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Language has often been compared to the game of Chess. In this article, I claim that a productive analogy for linguistic interaction would be the Asian board game GO. I further explore common aspects of language use and creative play that we find in improvised ensemble music-making. What is said about language and games, and language and improvised music-making is then related to a discussion of linguistic interaction as constitutive of thought and mind.
