Abstract: In looking at language in general, against a larger background of culture, civilization and technology, we have come to perceive as its vital elements not only mental and social aspects, but biological and temporal. Now we believe that it is necessary to beware of Bally and Sechehaye's version of Saussurean fallacy by which they distinguish la langue, la parole and le langage while regarding la langue as central. At the same time, we have come to notice the deficiency in Chomskyan Universal Grammar, as basically disconnecting mind from body and locating language simply in mind. This theory is incapable of explaining how we have come to be what we are. Language as a whole is a very complex entity, evolved and evolving as interlocking biological as well as social systems, elastic and learnable, adapted to any condition of existence for human beings, because of its peculiarly versatile fuzziness. We, human beings, have been able to live and continue to live in our own culture and in the ever developing civilized society, because of being homo loquens. This means that we should look at language itself from an evolutionist viewpoint.
