此书通过两种语言所出现的各类现象,发起对“有关中文和英文,这两种语言的真理性”的探索与考究。可是因为,真理只能被启示而得以完全,不能通过有限地观察而得以完整地被呈现。 因此,该书会把“最大程度内”所得到的观察而整理出来的,具备解释性与囊括性的单元语言性的意义,系统地分成各类“双语语言定理”。本书所要负责的,以及想要承担的使命,与倡导的意义就在于传扬这些“双语语言定理”。我们又通过这些已经建立起来的,相对比较成熟的定理系统,以此来引导两种语言之间的相互佐证和推衍,从而达到“教学相长”的功用。至于在“教”与“学”的过程中,由诸类“双语语言定理”所推衍出来的各样“实用性”的推理,本书尚不能承担由这些推理所引发的自由思考和结论。

是故学然后知不足,教然后知困。知不足,然后能自反也;知困,然后能自强也。
故曰:教学相长也。
- 乐正克 《学记》
Therefore, learning makes awareness of self-insufficiency and teaching makes less of stubbornness. Thus, self-insufficiency enables reflection and humility; less stubbornness increases flexibility and strength. Therefore, the old wisdom often proclaims “teaching and learning should grow together.”
— Zhengke Yue (Mencius's Student), Chronicle of Education
