” How did language develop? In much the same way as an economic order develops through the market – out of the voluntary interaction of individuals, in this case seeking to trade ideas or information or gossip rather than goods and services with one another.”
-Milton Friedman (1912 – ) and Rose Friedman, 1979
This week’s topic is language. And whatever language we speak, it’s our way of communicating with one another. Language is a means of translating our feelings and emotions into words so that we can be understood. When we can master a language, then we can be more clearly understood, and we can more clearly understand, too. There’s always more to learn, about words, and about each other.
