February 12, 2017: Language is the human capacity of acquiring and using of complex systems of communication.

Language is a medium for interaction, exchanging ideas, understand feelings of others, and for the development of the human race existing on this planet.

The only medium or the basic element that comes in use for understanding it is the language that we speak makes us understand and allows us to live in peace and harmony by understanding the feelings and problems of others by exchange of talks on the desk of peace.

The language that a person speaks describes the character and his/her personality. It’s a medium through which a person delivers his or her ideas to the world. Learning a language is all about knowing how to communicate with a different section of people on the other side of the world.

Language plays an important role in the world of trade, international agendas and many other top official things.

Language also influences a person’s life not by its literature but by its people who speak the language. It’s we humans who give the language it’s real value.

Let me share an incident when I was in Assam. I fell in love with its beauty of nature until I reached the place where I was going to stay. I saw weird insects, plants and reptiles and I started hating it. Then it was their language which I was new to. At first I didn’t understand it but then one of my friends made me learn the language a bit and soon I started to like it and then I started going down the streets chatting with locals. I had a great time as the people were appreciating my fluency and all through I mapped most of the places on my own with the help of the language I learnt.

From that time, I have an interest in exploring. It’s really interesting when a person explores places knowing just how to communicate in their language. For me learning languages has helped a lot, it has helped me in knowing and exploring new places unknown to me and ways of dealing in different places among markets and shops.

Languages has sub divisions of their own

  • Culture
  • Literature
  • People

These three things give the importance of a language.

Culture describes the community of people who have a set of stereotypes of living in a society of their own and a different language which is used for their communication.

Literature describes the beauty of the language in the fields of fiction, poetry and plays.

People make the language get its importance in a society of different class or of some new people. A person is like a Representative of his language in a society of unknown people.

Many scientific researches have been done in the field of language, tracing it to the past and trying to know the ideas and their implementations.

Scientific research in the field of language has led to the era of communication through technology and artificial intelligence. In the present generation there are many specific languages used for the operation of machines, for example, C language is used to design software for computers, binary language and codes are used in electronics etc.

Research has taken language from the exchange of words between humans to the words exchanged between humans and machines.

In the past, the trace of language was believed to be originated from a shower of cosmic ray happened during the time of very first existence of humans on earth. There has been a lot of myths and theories regarding the word language. Well it has been found that language existed before the humans and there are no other traces that can be found to find its actual origin.

Language describes the physical condition of human beings. As it has been explained through biological research, there are specific parts in the brain of humans specially for the language they speak or learn.

There is also a structure for language. According to modal language structures, language is based on two elements, sounds that human produce and gestures which means signs used in language. Meaning of a statement in a specific language exists through sound and gestures that a human uses while speaking. Sounds bring emotions and gestures which relates to grammar of the language builds the sense of brain into words.

Language is not only a set of words with a meaning it’s more than that. It’s a weapon or a tool that drives the screw inside the wall, a tool which fits the wheels and make the thing move.

It’s a man-made gift to the human race which is helping till now to demonstrate and represent our self, our ideas, our ideology, our humanity, our service and commitment.

Smart people may learn music faster than others, say researchers from Michigan State University in a study.

Published in the journal Intelligence, it examines the relationship between intelligence, music aptitude and growth mindset among beginner pianists.

Growth mindset refers to whether students believe they can improve basic abilities, like piano ability.

“The strongest predictor of skill acquisition was intelligence, followed by music aptitude,” said study researcher Alexander Burgoyne.

In the study, 161 undergraduates were taught how to play ‘Happy Birthday’ on the piano with the help of a video guide.

After practice, the students performed the 25-note song multiple times.

Three MSU graduate students judged the performances based on their melodic and rhythmic accuracy.

There were striking differences in the students’ skill acquisition trajectories. Some learned quickly, earning perfect marks within six minutes of practice.

Others performed poorly at first but improved substantially later.

By comparison, some seemed to fade as if they had lost their motivation and others never figured it out, performing poorly throughout the study.

To find out why did some students fail while others succeeded, the researchers gave the students tests of cognitive ability that measured things like problem-solving skills and processing speed, and tests of music aptitude that measured, for example, the ability to differentiate between similar rhythms.

They also surveyed their growth mindset.

“The results were surprising, because people have claimed that mindset plays an important role when students are confronted with challenges, like trying to learn a new musical instrument,” Burgoyne said. (IANS)
