Art & Culture Communication

Which language uses both side of human brain ?

A language is a systematic system of human communication that includes speech and gestures (spoken language), sign language, and, in certain cases, writing. The most widely spoken languages feature glyph-based writing systems that allow sounds or gestures to be recorded and reactivated later.  Linguistics is the scientific study of language. Critical studies of languages, such as language philosophy, the links between language and cognition, and how words express reality, have been argued at least since the time of Gorgias and Plato in ancient Greece.

Some thinkers, such as Rousseau (1712–1778), argue that language arose from emotions, while others, such as Kant (1724–1804), argue that languages arose from rational and logical thought.  Philosophers of the twentieth century, such as Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951), claimed that philosophy is essentially the study of language. Ferdinand de Saussure and Noam Chomsky are two major figures in contemporary linguistics.  Between 5,000 and 7,000 human languages are estimated to exist in the world.

Any exact estimate, however, is contingent on the arbitrary distinction (dichotomy) between languages and dialects. Natural languages are spoken or signed (or both), but any language can be encoded into secondary media via  visual, or tactile stimuli, such as writing, whistling, signing, or braille. To put it another way, human language is modality-agnostic, while written or signed language is the means of encoding or encoding actual human voice or gestures.

When used as a general concept, “language” can refer to the cognitive ability to learn and use complex communication systems, or it can describe the set of rules that make up these systems, or the set of utterances that can be produced from those rules, depending on philosophical perspectives on language and meaning.

Amazing facts about language

Today, there are over 7,000 dialects spoken in over 2,700 languages around the world. Chinese, Spanish, English, and Hindi, in that order, are the most widely spoken languages. Chinese has over 50,000 characters, making it the most widely spoken language on the planet.

The Bible is the most commonly translated book, with 2,454 translations accessible. Pinocchio comes in second. Agatha Christie, on the other hand, is the most translated novelist in the world.

Sanskrit, Sumerian, Hebrew, and Basque are among the oldest known languages. However, the only reason we know this is because their languages have been written down. The question of “What is the earliest language?” will never be fully addressed because it ignores spoken languages with oral history.

Language is considered to have begun some 100,000 years ago. The age of language is still a point of contention. Nonetheless, most linguists agree that it started about the time modern humans (homo sapiens) evolved contemporary skull forms and vocal cords in Africa. Language arose as a result of having the right tools in place, such as a large enough skull, a large enough brain, and a large enough voice box.
