Language – Blog No. 29

earthhour

Until you have been taught a language other than your mother-tongue, you cannot appreciate what it is that you have learned to speak.  You cannot be sure how you speak, either.  The solution, therefore, is to decide in which other language you would like to become fluent and become familiar with its people.  That is the best way to begin anything.  Make certain you get a teacher that knows what they are speaking, too, otherwise it’s unlikely that you will ever be able to communicate properly.

There are languages that are more beautiful than others.  Some places have ways of saying things that resonate with a person’s soul, their entire being.  Silence, too, is a language.  It is not simple to speak in silence, but it is beautiful.  I was told once that the French have a word – or a phrase – to describe that moment right before orgasm, which I think is particularly special.  I should like to know if that is true.  If it isn’t, perhaps it should be.

Language serves more purposes than communication.  It carries in its essence everything we have all ever been.  When we think in that way about ourselves, the world as we know it, it would make sense to value each and every language that has ever been developed.  It would make sense to value the people that speak those languages, too.
