I am currently reading the Novel "Embassytown" about an alien race that
communicates sense directly. They have a language but it is superfluous.    (03)

Those poor things can only communicate "real world" sense. Lies, metaphor
and "deeper" thinking are beyond them. The author sees the loose coupling 
between word and sense as the fundamental feature of language.    (04)

When you put words together, you often create completely new senses that 
cannot be grasped by looking at indidual word senses only.    (05)
