N the Beginning was Society 21 of a dialectical process between humans and the material world, mind comes to be seen as the prime mover of historical change. With the development of society, the growing complexity of human labour and the rise of industry, as labour became more perfect and more diversified, and tribes developed into nations and social organization became codified into law and politics, the human mind came to be seen as the supreme organizer of these things. 'Men became accustomed to explain their actions as arising out of their thoughts instead of their needs7 (Marx and Engels 1970: 72).
They are dynamic rather than static formations' (1986: 217). This mutability springs from the very relationship back and forth between thought and word. To grasp the interconnection of thought and word, Vygotsky probes deeper than Volosinov into the workings of inner speech. Where Volosinov stressed the social signs and the dialogic element that make up inner speech, Vygotsky stresses its contextual features, again along a developmental axis. Instrumental to his investigation into inner speech is how the latter develops in children from egocentric speech (or speech to oneself).
Volosinov grasped this inherently generative view of language as emanating not just from individual creativity but from the shifts and alterations in society. 'In the vicissitudes of the word are the vicissitudes of the society of word-users' (Volosinov 1973:157). The acceptance of language varieties as part and parcel of the process of language change is something that is central to the freeing of oppressive strategies of language imposition but is an assumption seldom made in the institutional promotion of English worldwide.
