Intentionality can't be intensional- discuss.
The Will is beyond or before Words, just as the urge to fuck up my computer is prior and posterior to the apprehension of the tools that make it inviting to tinker to that end.
Tool usage can be parsed intensionally- generating an I-language, so to speak- and there are good didactic or organizational reasons for such behavior to evolve- however, Meaning is not in that use if individuals can have self generated intentionality and language is ultimately about individual interchange.
