The Value Of Language

Why is language so important? Without a language people couldn’t communicate, which means that societies would not exist.

Moreover, through negotiations, disagreements between countries are solved. This is very important because if for instance differences between Greece and Turkey were not solved through negotiations, we would have a war now. Furthermore, it preserves the traditions of a culture and it contributes to the development of sciences. Written files help us know what past generations did or found so we can continue doing some of them or improve them. For example, if a past generation found the cure for an illness we wouldn’t have to do it again. Last but not least, language contributes to the innate tendency of people to express their feelings. People like to have friends and express their emotions and then the pleasure gets maximized. To conclude, the importance of language is really great due to many factors.
