--Under Construction--

Scientific Reasoning involves many different methods and techniques.  Language has an indefinite number of uses in addition to the communication of information.  Many of these uses do not intend the intersubjective transfer of factual or literal  information.  Oftentimes, misunderstandings occur when language form (the type of sentence) is confused with language function (the use of the sentence) or when statements are not phrased in an emotively neutral manner.
