After a selection from the remarks made by students about their preferen-ces towards writing in the I-mode, the YOU-mode or the ONE-mode, I propose two hypotheses:1. There is a certain connection between the degree of self-experience and self-responsibility (primary existence) and the choice to speak or write in the I-, YOU- or ΟΝΕ-mode, but apparently it also holds that the choice of one of those modes restricts or elaborates the space a person has to express himself.More generally stated:There is a certain interaction between the way of existence of a speaker or writer and the way of self-denomination in his utterances.2. There is a certain connection between the degree to which a speaker or writera) has knowledge about himself and wants to be responsible for his feelings, thoughts and acts;b) guards or unveils his intimacy towards a hearer or reader;c) wants to be involved in or responsible for a process or activity outside his body;and the way he denominates himself or the outside process or activity in his utterances.I give some examples of ways of linguistic alienation, and propose an arrangement of the degrees of alienation in the same way as is done in language for local distances:HERE THERE YONDER SOMEWHERE NOWHEREI I, as a.. YOU ONE NONE(self) (increasing self-separation) (self-ignoring) (self-eliminating)I expect that children with a very sensitive linguistic intuition, draw conclusions about the reliability of adults from the way they use alienation codes; that human beings are or become strangers to one another, or are more attached as friends and lovers by using alienation codes or direct human language; that relational, social and economic victims advertise themselves as potential victims by the way they use alienation codes and do not recognize their potential oppressors by the way they use alienation codes.The main field of linguistic study as human linguistics lies in making clear what the differences are between direct human language and alienation codes.
