I agree with much of what you say as what you say matches many familiar principles of my own. However, the “people context” does have a privileged place over other contexts to me in that it SHOULD theoretically be possible for all people to communicate with all people with clarity in all the complexity of human life and needs. We’re all the same species. Our languages can generally translate to each other SOMEHOW and we have multiple ways; hand gestures, empathy, body language, etc that go beyond spoken words and can assist mutual human communication as well. This is something humans can do with each other that can’t be done across species; not in the same way; But then we can get into trouble when we humans use the same phrases as each other in the same languages but mean different things. Words can also trigger emotional reactions; people don’t like adjectives applied to them that they don’t agree with for example – and that can hamper clear communication, lead to misunderstandings, etc.
