The article explores the teaching of the nature of Speaking-Listening Man and his works. A committee, devoted to the proposition that Speech is the study of Speaking-Listening Man and his works, seems also to be making another--a revolutionary--declaration. Professing the study of Speaking-Listening Man and his works, one might even supply Carl Freudenreich with some of those objective measures of speech competence for which he asked. Experiencing speech as an event is educative only by accident. Understanding the event and the forces that shaped it is the end of all study of Speech. Who will strip the veil of mystery from speech
