Words are portals that transport people back and forth between interpersonal communication and joint imaginary participation in a world of phenomena to which the words point, It’s a portal between the immediate specific encounter with phenomena and the more abstract realities in which the phenomena participate.

The word flower transports the language-user from this particular flower to the idea of flowerness in realities having to do with plants, gardens and beautiful objects. The opening of this linguistic portal between specific and generic, between phenomena and structures, must have been a significant achievement in human cultural development.

According to the theory of Linguistic Portality single phenomenon can participate in an unlimited number of alternate realities, Non-Overlapper Mode assigns single phenomenon to a single reality, a phenomenon, or the linguistic signifier that points to it, cannot thus function as a portal between alternate realities.
A reality is an array of phenomena organised according to a particular structure. In the Non-Overlap mode there is no linkage readily available for a quick & effective passage into different realities. Probably the most frequently-encountered example of linguistic portality is the metaphor: It’s not my cup of tea
