Englishwork: Fundamentals of Language

Language is not only the fundamental building blocks of our communication with others, but is the core of our understanding of the world around us, as well as ourselves.

How can one formulate a thought without language? How can one make judgement upon a decision, or conceptualize even the most basic ideas without it?

Only as humans developed language were they able to advance beyond a group of monkeys, monkeys who would previously follow their every instinctive urge, without the ability to look to the future ahead or remember the past behind.

If you’re here, you must understand on some level how important language is, how vital its role is in communication and its significance in day to day life. You want to grasp understanding of this artful and often overlooked aspect of our existence; uncover the subtleties of its use?
