Language, Uncommon communication, Communication
Language is a fundamental part of living today -- this is undeniable. One may plausibly view language as the bridge between the minds of different people. This is no small feat when we consider the disconcerting alternative of living among others but in the solitude of our own experience. Without language, one can learn through observing the world and the other people, but language affords us deeper, more valuable, relationships. When we want to feel a connection with someone we talk to them, and when we want to acquire new knowledge we read something. There appears no better way to express such important things, like love or sadness, than through language. Because there is massive value in being able to express these things, the key role of language in our social lives is justified.
