  What is Law: A Language Game analysis
They are not (always) games in the sense of merely trying to defeat an opponent or in being frivolous ways to pass time.
Language games come in two broad categories, or rather we may say that language plays two distinguishable roles in our lives.
All of these games play roles in all our lives but people differ greatly in which point of view they give a dominant role in their whole lives.

 Wittgenstein's Concept of a Language Game
In this language game, then, people seem to be using language to prompt people to do specific things (bring beams or slabs).
Here the term 'language game' is meant to bring into prominence the fact that the 'speaking' of language is part of an activity, or form of life.
The idea is that if we think in terms of language games, that is, if we ask how our language games are taught and how they are used, then we will begin to see past certain myths in our culture that trap us in misleading pictures of language processes and communication.

  Language game at AllExperts
Language games are used primarily by groups attempting to conceal their conversations from others.
Language games are primarily used by children, to disguise their speech from others.
Although language games are not usually used in everyday conversation, some words from language games have made their way into normal speech, such as ixnay in English (from Pig Latin), and loufoque in French (from Louchébem).

  Language-game - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
All of a natural language composed of a family of language-games.
The language is meant to serve for communication between a builder A and an assistant B. A is building with building-stones: there are blocks, pillars, slabs and beams.
This language-game resembles the simple forms of language taught to children, and Wittgenstein asks that we conceive of it as "a complete primitive language" for a tribe of builders.

 General Game Player Language
The description language for General Game Player games is a subset of first order logic, using syntax from the KIF language.
This definition of games is similar to the traditional definition in game theory with a couple of exceptions.
Since all of the games that we are considering are finite, it is possible, in principle, to describe such games in the form of lists (of states and actions) and tables (to express legality, goals, temination, and update).

 Jose Zagal   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Game designers have called for a design language (Costikyan 1994; Church 1999; Kreimeier 2002; Kreimeier 2003), noting that designers currently lack a unified vocabulary for describing the design of existing games and thinking through the design of new games.
An ontology is different than a game taxonomy in that, rather than organizing games by their elements, it is the elements themselves that are organized.
The interface is where the player and game meet, the mapping between the embodied reactions of the player and the manipulation of game entities.

 Only a Game: Language Games
In the builder’s game, the capacity to carry rocks (which would not, for instance, be possible for a snake or a fish since they have no capacity to lift) is essential to the existence of the game and hence of the words involved.
Following the concept of a language game, the purpose of a word is the use that it serves within its language game.
Language games are similarly related to one another by family resemblance, and as with other games, rules are of some significance in the formulation of many (but not all) language games.

 Against a Formal Language for Game Design
Furthermore, by creating a formal language, the potential usefulness of its "truths" is restricted to that group which has received sufficient training (or one could be unkind and call it indoctrination) to understand its grammar, syntax, and vocabulary and sufficient practice to use those elements correctly.
A game design has to take into account whatever limitations there may be with the engine, with the art assets, with the testing process, in short, everything that affects the final experience of the game.
Rather, these formal languages are available precisely to the fewest of the few, the elite who have the luxury of being able to invest years of study and training into the pursuit.

A language game is exactly the same, but with clear linguistic rules to which all participants in the activity must conform.
This type of game is excellent to encourage the shy students, since it requires the participation of all the members of a team, group or pair.
The teacher may be Master of Ceremonies and direct the game, or give that responsibility to a good student, in which case he will become the evaluator of the responses and occasionally the scorer of the game.

 Amazon.ca: Game Work: Language, Power, and Computer Game Culture: Books: Ken S. McAllister   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Ken McAllister notes in his introduction to Game Work that, even though computer games are essentially entertainment, they are in fact important mediating agents for the broad exercise of socio-political power.
Computer games, he argues, have transformative effects on the consciousness of players, like poetry, fiction, journalism, and film, but the implications of these transformations are not always clear.
Games can work to maintain the status quo or celebrate liberation or tolerate enslavement, and they can conjure feelings of hope or despair, assent or dissent, clarity or confusion.

 HYLE 4-1 (1998): Chemicals as Instruments - A Language Game
After some time of private use of the likening 'chemicals as instruments' I convinced myself that a language game on the issue could be amusing (at least for me), and the present paper is the 'result' of the game.
In the first place, we may look at the use of the word 'instrument' in the contemporary historiography and philosophy of science in order to obtain a few traits of the meaning of the word, and the correlate traits of the historians' and philosophers' interpretation of what is an object named 'instrument'.
My desire was to play a language game, which could give a better understanding of the equation 'chemicals as instruments'.

Game theory generates no predictions about the real world but it is a useful way of organizing your thinking about various real-world phenomena.
Well, it looks like game theory is a great uniter, with economists on both the right and the left leaping in to defend it from my questions, The first shot came from Tyler Cowen, a libertarian.

 Tut Language, American Speech
My introduction to TUT Language began when I happened to be the only child at home on a day that my mother’s sister came to visit.
She told me that perhaps some slaves made a language game from the sounds they heard repeated by the owners’ children who were being taught to read.
In 1969 I was told by my aunt that her father (who could read and write English) had referred to TUT Language as a “disguised language” that could have got him killed; thus, as a grown man he refused to speak it.

 ADLER ARCHIVE: Some Questions About Language
It was Wittgenstein also who was the first to realize, belatedly, the incompatibility of the ideal language game with the actual functions which language performs in daily life and in ordinary discourse.
This gave rise, within the tradition of analytic and linguistic philosophy, to the movement or school which is devoted to the analysis of ordinary language or everyday speech.
The rudiments of a sound and adequate approach to the philosophy of language can be found in modern thought, but not within the orbit of what, in the twentieth century, has come to be called "linguistic philosophy".
