Abstract: Displacement, the ability to refer to things that are spatially and temporally remote, is one of the important features of human language. In order to clarify what is truly unique to human language, we consider displacement in the context of communication. Various situations involving displacement are classified and examined. It is suggested that displaced understanding, which is not based on direct experience is unique to human beings. An experimental framework to investigate the cognitive mechanism of displacement in communication is introduced. The result of a preliminary experiment leads to a hypothesis that feature extraction is one of the mechanisms that enables displacement in communication.
