Discrete versus Holistic 2

In the above post, I said that language tends to be more discrete in how it picks the world apart.
I think that should be amended:  language seen as articulate contact, language in an engagement with the world, is very much a holistic phenom.

Only when we record what was said into memory, and then we invoke the memory again to ponder it, does it become a discrete and logical picking apart of the skein of language.
