Language’s dual nature as a system is proved—relevant (individual information system) and virtual nature (individual conceptual system). The use of creolized discourse has shown that operating a language at the level of an information system puts an individual as a passive consumer of the available values (the given). On the contrary, operating a language at the level of a conceptual system provides an individual with the status of a creative person who initiates the birth of sense (the created). It is proved that if a language as an information system can function irrespective of a conceptual system, the actualization of a language as a conceptual system is impossible without an information system within which it is found. It is argued that, in contrast to meaning, which, being objective (rational) is subject to arbitrary subjectivity during use, due to the emotional valency of a word, sense appears as an intersubjective phenomenon, marked by the unity of emotional and rational, non-verbal and verbal, internal and external.
