This thesis mainly studies Magritte's perspective and paintings related to linguistic affinities. The reason he has taken an important place in Surrealism is the poetic and philosophical content in his paintings. He thought that ideas of artists took the more important role than art works in their art world because art works were means of communicating and are languages themselves not just represented images. In addition Magritte claimed that he was the prime exponent who delivered his ideas to the public through paintings. His opinion in his writing , and his styles in his paintings, and are concrete examples showing the contradictory conjunction of figures and words or titles by being based on 'Option of Language'. What Magritte suggested by his paintings was that viewers could appreciate the hidden world, distorted aspects in his paintings by 'Option of Language'. He presented objects taken from everyday life, but he positioned those objects in a way that subverted the rational order. Magritte reveled the hidden world in the unconsciousness and paradoxical aspects with 'Option of Language'. By applying this method, he represented the reality that has been reconfigured to show its underlying mysterious component. What Magritte set apart from other surrealists who took 'Automatism' and reflected the unconsciousness was his technique of juxtaposing ordinary objects in an extraordinary way. Magritte would leave objects intact, but play with their placement in the reality by playing with logic. This technique was defined as 'Magic Realism'. In Saranne Alexandrian's book, , Andre Broton classified Magritte's paintings by using six distinguished elements: First magnification of details, Secondly blending of replacing objects, Thirdly animating inanimate things, Fourthly opening to the mystery, Fifthly transforming from living creature to lifeless object, lastly the anatomic surprise. More over he added words for extending his art world and confirming artistic traits. The way that he mixed images with words was similar with that of Surrealists who mixed different objects in a wide arrange. In other words, Magritte saw the words and sentences as things, forms and objects to the paint. Thus Magritte's work pursued a outstanding technique by comparing to linguistic traits in abstract paintings.
