A Pair of Bright Spectacles

Posted on March 13, 2008


Suppose I have a pair of ‘bright’ spectacles; these, when I put them on, allow me to speak fluently in German.

German words appear; grammar; meaning.

 “So that language is really in the spectacles.”

But then in talking up a fluent German don’t the words come from me, from inside my head; aren’t they mine?
