The thesis shows how "language" is relevant to Heidegger's overall ontological project in Being and Time through an investigation of "significance" as it is founded in everyday things which are ready-to-hand, and "Being in the truth", as it is shown in the Existentiales: "mood", "discourse" , and "understanding". It considers what Heidegger thinks is implied by an Husserlian approach to language, if his own views on the reductions are adopted. The view is ,that, even more basically than being communication, the essence of language is articulation. Truth is taken to be disclosedness. Heidegger's temporal account of language based upon the structures of lived experience is also shown to be a fully temporal (and non-technological) approach to Being problematics.
