psycholinguistics/representational systems

This field of science concerns itself with the psychic preconditions of language as well as the linguistic influence on psychic structures and processes. The fundamental postulate of this approach is that the personal experiences in the individual's life history imprint themselves in the individual's subjective representational systems.
