Οι γλώσσες (The Languages)

In my world and many others, there are different languages that are being spoken and make us unique in some forme and way. In the movie Of Mice and Men, the language that is being spoken tells a story about each and everyone of the characters. If one tends to swear a lot, its shown that they might of had many troubles in their childhood such as abuse or moved to a foster home. If one’s language is very rare to hear then he`s more shy and caring for his/her`s religion.

I think that in the movie they have displayed very well the character by showing how they talk, it may not show the whole story but much of it. Language and how it is spoken can often show the near future on how people may react to certain things.

As Jay notes, “Swearing is like using the horn on your car, which can be used to signify a number of emotions (e.g., anger, frustration, joy, surprise).”

Research, according to Jay, has shown we swear on average from 0.3% to 0.7% of the time — a tiny but significant percentage of our overall speech

Jay notes, “Swearing is like using the horn on your car, which can be used to signify a number of emotions (e.g., anger, frustration, joy, surprise).”

    Your video clip illustrated that we may make different vocal sounds but the message was the same: Happy New Year. I often read FB and young or old will use certain words that I find degrading ex. B****
    You made very good points.

  2. You’re right when you said, “Language and how it is spoken can often show the near future on how people may react to certain things”. In as much as there are different languages to express the same thing, there are also as much meaning as in how we express the language. Have you tried saying happy New Year with an angry tone, or a happy one? How about saying it with a sad note or an indifferent attitude? It’s the same words but with a different meaning. It will surely elicit different reactions. This is a very interesting theme!
