When we hear the word ‘performance’ what do we think of? Well, it depends. Language is contextual not propositional. If you want to know about language you need to know the context in order to understand how it is being used. For example, when we use the word ‘performance’ in the Arts, … [Read more...] about What Do You Mean By Performance?
