Distributed language has little to do with intervals, and a lot to do with Dynamics

Can a person really focus just on language? It’s as if a baseball player focused only on throwing, and a basketball player only shooting. Language is not isolated to a specific spot in the brain, and the idea that language can be learn in isolation, particularly in a classroom is improbable. Classrooms are meeting places, not necessarily places of learning, they are places of gathering where ideas can be shared, explored, and distributed.

While for some, distribution suggests intervals, a system, the underlying conception in language is of constant motion that isn’t necessarily controlled. Even the conception of system suggests order, order is only a part of the dynamics of system.

Distribution in the sense of language suggests fluidity and consistency, distribution in space and time.
