About talking


You wouldn't dare to talk if you didn't believe that someone - or just the person you are talking to- will understand what you say. Does that confirm Wittgenstein's concept of language-games? It applies to poetry as well. But do we take in consideration the fact that what we say may be misunderstood? Not really, I guess.

And from another perspective: do we understand what we are doing when we are talking?
