In this article, the author suggests a theory of fractal linguistics. In an article treated as the introductory segment to a larger discussion, he introduces the notion of ‘linguistic space’ and the validity of using fractal geometry as a model for visualizing the complex relations that exist within and among concept systems in both monolingual and multilingual environments.
