Hi Yanniru,

I am not talking specifically about the physics of language. I am not talking about acoustics specifically. I am talking about the structure of pattern comparisons.

I am suggesting that the laws governing the networks of compared patterns in a word-dictionary may involve pattern-laws that coincide with the laws of physics we use to describe pattern-laws in nature.

I am proposing a direct carry-over of pattern-matching laws and associated structures; from physics to word-dictionaries; at least on an analogy level.

Agreement on mutually acceptable definitions is required for scientists to agree on their theories.

If each scientist constructs a view of the other scientists' communications via his personal self-referent experience of interacting with them; then the laws governing a group of scientists mutual agreement on definitions, will underpin whatever laws their mutual theories propose?

Does Dr. Stafford show that most current physics laws are the laws governing the scientists mutual definition agreements themselves?

Make sense?
