THE LANGUAGE TALE
"Language is mankind's greatest invention- except, of course, that it was never invented." - Guy Deutscher “The Unfolding of Language”
While the story of the Tower of Babel speaks of a unified language being shattered across the earth, Language is far more complex and complicated. Indeed, over time, language has proved that it is not a simple, static set of rules, but rather a truly living thing that morphs and grows and has its own tale to tell.
The evolution of language says more about Mankind as a whole than the differences our linguistics would indicate. It shows how despite our apparent cultural difference, we all at least have language in common.
