3V0805.01 Language as formulating experience (Eavesdropping) (4/6/80)

Peggy wakes early. As I brought some morning coffee to Gretchen,
I heard Peggy talking in the crib (through the wall) “Look at the spider,
swinging…swinging…”

Why is this significant ? Language as formulation of experience,
expressing the flow of understanding without communicative intention;
fluency as delineating the well established paths of control. difficulty
in expression as marking the boundaries of organization.
