Linguistic sedimentation

Added on by sabine kussmaul.

The shape of landscape is a collection and superposition of the material remnants of its constant change. Mountains, valleys, and other three-dimensional features have come about through tectonic movements, erosion and sedimentation.

In a more abstract or metaphorical sense, such features like erosion, sedimentation or adoption of new and loss of old  also applies to language.

This parallelism between linguistic language and landscape might be of relevance to my practice because  I use notation in drawing to move on  pre-used paper landscape and explore new territory, drawing forwards as I move and draw along, and conneting to my own physical movements on the real land, when out on a running journey
