Clarisa Citadel
English translation:Referential Language
Explanation:
Hello Clarisa,

Let´s analyze Referential Language together...it is a language
whose primary function is to communicate ideas, facts, opinions, and other notions of an intellectual kind; also called "propositional" or "ideational language".
It is the kind of language employed whenever people wish to learn from each other. The term was devised to draw a contrast with those functions of language where the communication of information is "not" the main consideration, such as the language of play, social interaction, or social identity, which are relatively neglected areas of linguistic study.

Good Luck with your thesis...pleased to help you.
