positivistic view of language

I'd still like to know what a "positivistic view of language" is.
Me too, and I'm a linguist (well, PhD candidate). My adviser, Beth
Levin (a well-read lexical semanticist) didn't know either. So if it's been
overthrown, it was a very quiet revolution from the linguistics perspective.
