2017-05-17

[SCIE web news, May 17th, 2017] Language is playing a tremendously pivotal role in our lives, of which the immense advances benefit most aspects of lives and are the intangible drive accelerating the pace to conduct efficacious exploration in human certain fields and simultaneously prompt the evolution of civilization.

 

Language is the most important communication tool of human being, and it is the main approach of sovereign communication. People use language to preserve and maintain the results of human civilization.

 

Language is the medium of people's exchange of ideas, it has a definite link with political, economic, social, technological and cultural impact. This cultural phenomenon is evolving, and its current spatial distribution is the result of development previously in ages. According to its pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary and other aspects, languages are separated into several variations in which languages have analogical characteristics. Each language system consists of many of different languages which are related to ​​the geographical distribution of a certain area, which exerts a profound influence upon various conventions and culture elements.

 

Language is a sound (image) instruction with a uniform coding and decoding standard developed by the biological counterparts due to communication demands.

 

Language is a command system and is the evolution of biological behaviors. Language and logic are reciprocally related, whereas, my logic capability of human being is more advanced. Therefore, currently only human beings are competent to use the language with a complete system.

 

I have been studying languages for approximately a decade since I was able to impose a relatively complete expression of my own interpretation. Chinese is my mother language while English is currently my first language and is being used by me with a relatively high frequency. I have been studying Japanese, German and Spanish for two years since I was approved to study in SCIE. From my personal perspective, there is no denying that Spanish is one of the most effective languages in Europe and on no account, can we ignore the significance of a wide usage of this commercial language. Vis-à-vis German which is a gee-whiz language with rigorous grammar and meticulous utilization, Spanish is more flexible upon the approaches to be expressed. The pronunciation of Spanish entails mighty hard efforts to practice due to the method to pronouncer’s’, while it is extremely simple to me because I am naturally capable to make accurate pronunciations of distinguished languages. I am the only student who has chosen both Japanese and Spanish as my elected courses on campus, which brings me a complementarity of comprehension upon languages. Japanese is an Asian language, which shows many similarities to chinese. Whereas, the study of Japanese shall be continuous and sustainable because it is impossible for any individual to utilize Japanese flexibly domestically in Japan without the colossal storage of vocabulary and grammar. German is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious because it is one of the most antiquated languages that are extant, which exhibits the vintage usages of ancient Europe languages. In German, grammar is extremely meticulous and requires strong logic, however, I used less than two months to subjugate this imperious language.

 

If grammar is a structure, then vocabulary is the filler of all the hiatuses. It is easy for us to memorize Spanish words upon our comprehension of English vocabulary.  I have nurtured a habit to note down all the regularities I am able to identify within a language, which promotes the progress for me to understand the connotation of this language. We should bring home o every individual the consequence of vocabulary because without vocabulary, language is literally not available to be used.

 

Besides, which can be defined as the fundamental element to learn a language is the comprehension upon this language as well as the related culture which includes literature and the discernment upon the domestic history that plays a pivotal role in witnessing the our individual interpretation on this language. Utilizing a mighty nature approach to exhibit our expressions can apparently benefit our initial impression delivered to others, thereby, on no account can we ignore the significance of presenting elegant and posh English to ensure others to define the extraordinary nature as well as principals that implement an obvious difference to segregate us from vulgarity. Whereas, the accent that plays a controversial role should always be emphasized upon its consequence which represents a language speaker's efforts and talents to endeavor to present this language by conducting emulation from natural speakers. There fails to exist a standard to identify the purity of an accent, but as the proliferation of some specific accents being popularized, it is more appropriate for us to impose the comparison with some extensively agreed accents to make some improvements. Accents always decide a person's social class, which is a global phenomenon. What we should do is to absorb the essence and drop the dregs by endeavoring to make better and clearer pronunciation.

 

In conclusion, language is the base of all human activities, and fortunately I am talented to have the capability to learn languages without conspicuous difficulty, which offers me a better horizon of the whole world and the possibility as well as potential to absorb the essence of every culture and drop the dregs according to my personal identification.
