Summary:
Various approaches have been taken toward the study of language. Prescriptive and descriptive approaches have been the most common, both assuming a set of natural language rules. The Fixed Choice point of view, evolving out of the descriptive approach, questions the nature of language rules and discovers, through the study of the word, classic, that this new point of view is also the point of view of the propagandist.
