-Hi

I know practically nothing about phonetics or phonology, but I do
know a little about how knowledge is represented in communities, and
the ever-present tendency to make an object out of a concept
(reification).

Thus, we need to generate representations of things in our
communications with each other (for instance, if I am trying to
explain something to you, or vice versa), but we also need to take
care not to turn these representations into actual mechanisms or
entities if there is no evidence to support their existence
independent of our representations.
