As far as I remembered, I never talked about fangs or a fi rmé that “I ate seven breakfasts last week”. Unlike grammarians, linguists and anthropologists are more interested in what people say, than in what I should say. The differences in speech are associated with, and they say a lot about, the variation so-
Cial, related to the region, education, ethnic background and gender. Men and women talk in a different way. Surely you can think about examples based on your experience, although you probably never realized that women tend to take their vowels to the periphery (think of “Aiiee”), while men tend to centralize them (think about “uh “And” Ugh “). Compared to women, men are more likely to talk about “without grammar”. Men and women also show differences when using terminologies related to sport or colors. Men usually know more terms related to sports, make more distinctions between them (for example, careers against bookmarks) and try to use the terms in the most precise way than women. Likewise, in fl uides more by the fashion and cosmetics industry, women use more terms to describe colors and refer to them more speci fiber than men. An example of the above happened to me at a conference where I showed the auditorium a purple shirt and asked for women to say the color of the shirt. The answer was diverse: Malva, Lila, Lavender, Violet or some other purple tone. Faced with this type of requests, women rarely have a single response, because they distinguish between different tones. Subsequently, I asked the males, and they responded in a consistently “purple”. The man who, at the moment, can imagine the difference between fuchsia and magenta or grape and aubergine is rare.
But nobody can say exactly when. Like culture in general, and from which language is a part, language is transmitted by learning, as part of the embodiment. Language is based on arbitrary associations learned between words and
The language can be spoken or written and is our main means of communication. Scripture has been existed for about 6,000 years. The language originated thousands of years before she,
