Sensory Language

clear.gif (807 bytes) Sensory language is language that uses words from the 5 senses. We can say that the opposite of sensory language is digital language - language that uses generalities far removed from the senses.

For example, He is very intelligent is digital language. There is nothing really to imagine or experience in the sentence.

Contrast this with:

We had been up all night with computer doing some calculations. Bob came in and we read the data to him. He looked down (mumbling to himself) for a few seconds and then looked up at  us and gave us the answer. He had calculated in his head in a few seconds what had taken the computer all night!

This is more meaningful than the sentence Bob is intelligent. One reason is that we can imagine the scene.
