<p>The purpose of this paper is to explore the possibilities of learning by words in the education of skills. In this paper, we focused on the relationship between exercise and words from the viewpoint from "can learners learn exercise by words?".</p><p>According to St. Augustine's theory of teaching, “… we do not learn anything by means of the signs called words”. This means that before we know the word, we know the thing it designates. This suggests the impossibility of education by language. This means that before we know the word, we know the thing it designates. This suggests the impossibility of education by language.</p><p>However, coaches and physical education teachers try to encourage learners' skill acquisition by the use of language when teaching. So it seems that the word may have some role in physical education and coaching.</p><p>In this paper, we used the title theory of Sasaki and examined the relationship between words and exercise. As a result, for the learner, it turned out that before and after listening to the words expressing the exercise, the appearance of the exercise changed to a different one, and a new perception appeared. It can be said that this provides a viewpoint of "what the exercise means".</p><p>Furthermore, quoting Herrigel's "Zen in the Art of Archery", it is possible to present an example to show that targeted skills are guided by words. In this case, it can be said that the words indicate "how to exercise".</p><p>From the above, it can be said that words in such a scene function to know (learn) new things.</p>
