Delire


core definition

Delire is defined as the "disorderly" side of language between reason and nonsense.


explanatory context

Delire refers to the incoherent side of language. Although language is a means of communication, it is argued by proponents of delire that we do not always mean something when we talk. They argue that the persistence of incoherence in language (i.e. delire), is because the origins of languages are rooted in the instinctive desires and drives of the human body.

 

Delire covers a wide range of fields including linguistics, fiction, poetry and philosophy.
