Language is central to engineering thought and action, but its role is obscured by the emphasis on math and science in an engineering education. This talk uses results commonplace in leadership coaching and speech act theory to examine the central role of language in engineering, especially in action, creation, and inquiry. The talk concludes with discussion of the role of the interpretation of distinctions in stories as a way to become a better engineering communicator.
