Meaning and Context-Three Different Perspectives.

Abstract

This paper involves exploring the link between meaning and context in the linguistic context from three different perspectives: communication, teaching and translation. Communicators, teachers and translators find it obviously crucial to observe the link which will serve as a significant indicator of enhancing their performance. For communicators, meaning and context go side by side to result in successful relationship with whom they address. For teachers, teaching vocabulary, reading and grammar requires intense concentration on meaning and context. For translators and interpreters, meaning and context are a key element in translation. This paper concludes that context considers a major factor at addressing meaning and meaning occupies an integral role at establishing context.
