The purpose of this research is to clarify the use of language and its limitation required for movement practice by considering on the relationship between both of them. Especially in the scene of movement acquisition, there always exists some concern with the decrease of useless linguistic explanation and increase of efficiency in the movement practice. Therefore, research is needed towards the solution of this subject. It will be also inquiring for the possibility and limitation of linguistic thinking in movement practice.
First, it is considered how the language has been used in PE class. Then, the use of language in movement practice is considered. It is also considered on the relationship between movement practice and indication of the specific performance. Although it is natural to use language in movement practice, too much reliance on the language may cause some negative effects. Hence, it is important for us to be aware of the use of language so that one can complete the effective acquisition of movement. That is to say, on which level of practice and that of language we may use with words.
To conclude, although language with abstraction can explain movements rationally, it is extremely difficult to produce “acticept” which means Gestalt of movement perception. Therefore, we should change our attention from the use of language for scientific explanation to the usage which draws out of practice. Furthermore, the language should have a nature of time. Hence, there are two essential points of the use of language in movement practice. One of the usages is to make the selection of words indicating “acticept”, and to articulate “acticept” required in the practice is the other. For its completion, it is necessary to discern the limitation of linguistic thinking in movement practice, to assure the logic of bodily thinking required for movement acquisition and movement practice, and to consider the role of language in the scene of movement acquisition.
