Before knowing the definition of Language, we should know why we use language and how it spreads?
After birth, a child gets language in a natural process. It is so natural that it seems like an automatic process like movement or breathing. But language is not a mere human-born reform or body-seeking practice. When a human being is seduced by an animal in the forest, he becomes speechless. Languages come into the child with various mental and social conceptions. With the growth of a child, it develops the use of his language. He does not need any conscious effort to acquire the mother tongue. So, what is language? Let’s explore with depth elaboration.
Humans belong to some sects, community or family borders. Under normal circumstances, no person is against the world or society. In the world or society in which people live, they would have similarities with their thought and functional equality with the world and other people. Language is the main pursuit of this equality. The first shoot of the social instinct of primitive people was revealed through the language. Through the language, it spreads in many ways to the social instinct, rescuing it from the confusion of the primitive life. Freed from the bondage of nature, man has become the master of nature. Language is not just a means of thinking, but also the origin of thought. Like a climber unable to grow without the support of poles, the thinking of human beings is unable to move without language.
What is Language:
There is no animal society and it doesn’t have to be. Animals roam solo or in pairs or in groups. But the group of the beast is not the society of the beast. There is only a male animal who is the leader in the group. We can call the group a family, not a society. The life of the animal is just a matter of survival; so, the language is absolutely unessential to them. However, many animals make noise for special needs, but it is just a sound.
Now the question is, what is the language? If thought-provoking human speech is a language, is the voice of animals— not even a language? But there is a fundamental difference between the vocal sounds of humans and animals. The intellect that adds language to the human mouth is not behind the call of this animal.
The first and foremost task of a person is to produce a favorable response to a person’s desire or excitement and to stimulate a person’s ear into his mind. For example, John and Emma have gone to travel. Emma said seeing the Apple ripe on the road, John, I got hungry, I’ll eat Apple. John got up on the tree and gave her Apple.
Analyzing the above matter, we found the below factors:
(1) The previous occurrence of certain sounds being uttered from the mouth of the Emma, that is, the excruciating reason for saying the John – the presence and appetite of the Emma;
(2) Reaction to this tension, Emma’s sentence towards John;
(3) John heard of Emma, and aroused similar tension in John’s mind – John’s knowledge and remedy for seeing Emma’s guilt and hunger; And
(4) The response to the tension caused by Emma’s words in John’s mind is to grow on the tree and place the fruit on the tree. Now if John had become a monkey without being human, he would not have felt the need to infuse Emma with his tension with language. He would go out and buy himself guava.
But the thought or tension of one person to the other person’s mind is not the only language that can be used. A person’s attitude can be amplified in the other person’s mind by the gestures of the hands and feet or by the signal in other ways. The sound of Emma’s voice as Emma communicated to John, as the sound of the voice of Emma made him aware of John, so the voice or movement of Emma could be heard in John’s mind and transmit that feeling in his mind. But by the way the language works, the indication is not the language, but in the narrow case, the only alternative is the language. However, hints can sometimes be helpful to speech. Speaker gesture is only an option. However, hints can sometimes be helpful in language. Speaker’s sign language is supportive. Such as the complement of the rhythm of the water.
In the middle of the phonetics, the dialect flattens the subject and the person. Special meaningful phonetics (that is, words) are representative of particular things and sounds, not those sounds. That is to say, we do not understand the sound of “M + A + N” when people say it, I mean a special and beautiful image of the particular animal that is inaugurated by this whole sound system. Therefore, phonetic symbolism is a sign of language.
The livestock breeder understands the person’s words or expressions. Some indigenous animals can transmit biological excitement to other animals by using a mapped or biased sound. The calf is released when the cow is called. Yet these are all hints. The person is not in spoken language. Why is there no sound or sound symbolism spoken here? The animal’s vocabulary derives from an unhealthy habit known in psychology as conditioned reflexes. Non-sensory mechanical response to callous nerve stimulation. But the voices of the people are sound. People use very special acoustics to make special prayers. The language has a special connotation with particular special acoustics. There is no such abundance and flexibility in the call of the animal.
Speaking of language specifically refers to word-of-mouth, namely mutual abuse. Language is the permanent representative of the language. There are limitations to the use of word language. Communication is possible only when the speaker and the audience are in close proximity. Nowadays, in the telephone-radio system, the speaker and the audience may not be contiguous but want to be synchronized. (In the case of gramophone and tape recorder, the speaker and the audience are not always in synch, but the language does not work, only one-sided or heard, Word of mouth is transient. The language of the written language is required for the language of the mouth to reach the unknowable non-objective target beyond the time interval. The script is the same as the sound. Only when written down can the language gain stability. Writing languages are used for the purpose of many listeners in space and time, so the writing language is somewhat different from the language of the mouth and adheres to a series of norms. There is less variation in the location and groups, especially in the language of the mouth. But in writing, the most common form of word-of-mouth is the accepted form of discrimination. Simple language is the norm followed by elegant language-writing, a language that is widely used in any large society. However, the use of plain language is instructive.
There is no specific common form of phonetics used in the language. The acoustics used in different languages are slightly different. The functions of the language used for a particular phonetic set are slightly different. The language community refers to the masses that use a particular acoustic instrument for the purpose of language. The use of the rituals of a particular language community may not have equality in matters of social rule, statehood, race, and heritage. Again, in a language community, everyone who speaks that language completely (ie, uses certain phonics) may not. Judging by word of mouth, there is a slight discrepancy in the language used in large communities within the language community. Besides, such discrimination of spoken languages in the region may not always be very obvious. But in the two distances of the same language community, it is not impossible to fully understand the mouths of one region.
