Matter of Matters ᴹᴹ







                                                  






Language, like any physical matter, has states. Three classical states of language matter observable
in everyday life are: Thought (Gas), Speech (Liquid) and Text (Solid). All states have different characteristics and properties.

Phase transitions
are similar to the ones of physical matter and can be described in similar terms:

1. Sublimation 
2. Condensation
3. Freezing 
4. Vaporisation 
5. Deposition
6. Melting
