Resumé

If the limits of our language are the limits of our world, in the famous Wittgensteinian formulation, we can confidently add that they are also the limits of our theories and methodologies. The terms we use to conceptualise psychological and social phenomena often reify and dichotomise realities that are otherwise both integrated and dynamic. How can we use language in research that captures both content and process, both meaning and action, both the conscious and the subconscious, both the individual and the social (and the list can continue...)? Illustrations of the _dangers_ of terminology will be offered from the field of creativity studies. A collective creative exercise will be set in place in order to overcome these barriers in our thinking and, consequently, in our acting in and on the world. Linguistic creativity, will be argued, should be the _best friend_ of researchers engaged in qualitative inquiry.
