For some time I have been aware that there is a great deal of work being done on the Meaning of Words and the Meaning of Sentences, funded, of course, by J.Q. Public.
I therefore started a search for the classification of these words and sentences to find out just what form of life they are, plants or animals or something inbetween. I have had no luck at all, and was wondering if anyone might point me to some work that has classified these apparent life forms. Surely they must be life forms, to have meaning and all, otherwise the leaders of our educational communities would not waste public funding nor grant these individuals the status of being paper trained.
Any help would be much appreciated. j.c.

What do you mean when you say that words and sentences are forms of life?
You are not very familiar with forms of humor are you?
