The following article is an attempt to understand crucial notions for modern psycholinguistics (and thus also for works of Kurcz 2000, 2005) of 'linguistic competence' and 'communicative competence' in the light of relatively new theories of grounding and embodiment of linguistic symbols. This perspective allows for seeing the independence of the two competences in a new light. Grounding and embodiment of linguistic symbols also enables seeing the characteristic features of language (systematicity and compositionality) as stemming from communicative competence and not only - as often thought - from linguistic. Although it is possible that language learning based solely on the latter competence could lead to a communicative system, it is suggested that such a system would be characterized by a rigid, inflexible semantics.
