Let us compare the above passage with the 'consummate parcellation' on pp. 24 — 25, where the other precursors ('inni prekursorzy') are Henry Sweet, P. Passy and A. Noreen. Paragraphs of various length are assigned to each. 8 Olga Akhmanova and Olga Alexandrova Note that the author's important comment is represented in the form of a separate paragraph: Uzywaj^c terminologii pozniejszej, transkrypcja narrow to transkrypcja fonetyczna, transkrypcja broadnatomiast to transkrypcja fonemiczna.

An energetic agent containing the capability for acting, directing language practice, and reflecting the whole dynamics of language. One cannot resist the temptation to ask the question: how can the language communication process last through centuries without increasing its inertia? All processes involving matter are subject to the laws of thermodynamics. Does language consciousness exert an antientropy influence? What kind of self-defence mechanism has language developed to avoid its thermodynamic fate?

It is not excluded that the latter could be conceived of as metaenergy. In language knowledge, there should probably be distinguished a subconscious and a metaconscious component. A relativistic approach to language would provide for the possibility of investigating it within macro- and microdimensions. The notions of the macroscopic world lose their validity in the quantum world. In order to approximate the latter we need notions reflecting its dynamics. Consequently, such notions as force, energy, consciousness-wave seem to be appropriate, among others, for glottotronics.
