Come si gioca ai gochi linguistici?


This paper aims to rethink some features of Wittgenstein’s thought, examining in particular the notion of “language-game.” A discussion of this notion is a way of rethinking the role played by context in linguistic processes. It is a role that cannot be understood if we do not focus on the topic for which the “language game” is played. In particular some characteristics of “language game” will be examined: topicality, broader normativity and multimodality. These characteristics will be applied to some actual “language games” like the standingman of Istanbul.
