Drawing on a range of interrelated phenomena, I present an ontological perspective on language that transcends the limitations inherent in spatial relations. The rational framework for this approach is based on the notion of embodied cognition (EC), which characterises the mind as physically grounded in its situated presence. My contribution to EC concerns the nature of situated presence, which I describe as oscillatory. If oscillations thereby ground intentionality, they might help to explain the patterns and processes evident in language.
