This article discusses several possible views of the agenda of phenomenology from the perspective of analytical philosophy of language, and it attempts to show how the approach of analytical philosophy can contribute to themes that are traditionally considered to be phenomenological. First of all, it brief¬ly discusses the problem of the priority of language (which, according to crude conceptions of the two traditions, is the basis of their opposition). In the second and third parts, the theme of understanding and imagination is examined, firstly in relation to things, and then in relation to persons, and the article traces some possibilities that can be brought to this discussion if we work with an explicit treatment of the sharing in a language.
