The term, semantics, stands here for the psychological processes of understanding, or «making sense of», different aspects of the world, including language. The author traces key moments of semantic development in a child: from the first appearance in a baby to the emergence of naming, or the phenomenon of giving names to objects. The author considers both psychological and psychophysiological content of word semantics and suggests an original view of how thoughts are articulated through words.
