The way people communicate with each other holds great significance. Without communication, there would be no relationship or connections within society. Language gives people the ability to connect to others on a deeper level and it gives them an insight into what others need. Besides, it adds to a person’s identity. The identity of someone is constructed with thoughts and ideas that are implemented from a young age through their language or ways of communication.
People use this form of communication every day, because of this it “harbors a power we’re rarely conscious of” (Crin). People do not realize how much of an impact it has on themselves. By being able to share ideas, thoughts, and feelings with others, it brings a deeper level of unity. It builds up to who a person is and it contributes to what they believe in. The language also is a “carrier of history, traditions, customs, and folklore from one generation to another” ( Zalmay). It contributes to culture and the beliefs of a group of people. In a culture, everyone from it is interconnected and they have this understanding that is difficult for outsiders to understand. All aspects of it take part in someone’s identity. They can take in what they have learned from their culture from stories, lessons, or traditions. Langue is “actually our identity” (Zalmay). It is evident to see without language or communication, there would be no transfer of ideas or customs from one person to another. Without any form of communication, how would they learn and be who they want to be?
As the years go by, society can see and experience the true impact of language. Without it, society would be lost and no progression would be possible. It contributes to many topics that people are not aware of. It can add to the understanding of other cultures and traditions that lead to the impact of oneself. Language also adds to the identity of a person and what they believe in.
