<p></p><p>ABSTRACT This work resumes previous studies by (CORREA, 2009; 2011a) and also (CORREA, 2014) aiming at questioning the role of written language. First, the concept of language is addressed, and then some reflections on agency are developed. Next, previous studies on written language are referred to approaching it in a pragmatic view. Finally, two examples are provided to establish connections between the hegemonic thought about writing as opposed to the decolonized view of writing. The conclusion draws attention to the necessity of decolonizing the intellect.</p><p></p>
