“In language lies the most important difference
between mankind and the rest of the animal kingdom. Language expresses identity, enables
co-operation, and confers freedom. In
language we create a symbolic model of the world, in which past and present are
carried forward to the future. Language
is the naming of experience, and what we name we have power over.”
(The Kingman Report)
