I recomend reading Tyranny of Words by Stuart Chase. It deals with communication, abstract/conceptual thinking and general semantics i think it is no less than extremely helpful for understanding the Dhamma.

Buddhist Meditation In Theory and Practice
A General Exposition According to the
Pāḷi Canon of the Theravādin School

Original Author Paravahera Vajirañāṇa Mahāthera (1962)
New Edition Revised and Edited by Allan R. Bomhard (2010)
"In preparing the Charleston Buddhist Fellowship edition of this manual, the original has been thoroughly reworked. New material has been incorporated from various sources, including the Visuddhimagga (Bhikkhu Ñāṇamoli’s translation), the translations from the scriptures given in the original have been compared against more modern translations and have been changed accordingly, the English has been reworded where necessary to improve clarity, new footnotes have been added, and Pāḷi terms have been reviewed and corrected where required. Thus, the current edition is virtually a new work."
