“Every time a language dies, the world loses a piece of its ability to survive.”

Languages play a pivotal role in day-to-day life. Languages break the communication barrier between people. The planet holds countless languages in its embrace.

Over the world, numerous languages are spoken. It has happened that a language died out. Some people assert that this is not important because life will be easier if there are fewer languages in the world. In my perception, the variety of languages must be preserved.

Every country has its own mother tongue. Every language represents a culture. For example, Hindi represents India being rooted in the vast history and culture of the area. The language must be preserved in order to save the past, the history and the culture. Over the world, English is considered an international language. When an individual finds it difficult to communicate in the native language of a country, he can use English which is understood and spoken by people over the world.  Moving further, there is a sense of happiness when speaking your own local tongue. It has a special charm.

Consequently, establishing one language for communication and saving the native languages too could be the most appropriate scenario.

When a language dies, the world loses some of the ability to survive. Once the traditions, culture and language of a civilization perish our world loses a piece of its existence.

The fact that in the course of so many years some civilizations have lost their originality is a bad thing, because each civilization is a curiosity for someone. Maybe some people want to discover new traditions and new cultures.

In my opinion, the disappearance of a language or a civilization deeply is disappointing because we all know that we can prevent this but we do nothing.

So when a language dies, we lose a piece of ourselves, of our reality.  It can also lead to the disappearance of a civilization, and that civilization can be our own.

In the context of today’s globalisation process, this famous adage is maybe more actual than ever. At the same time with the language the culture, the traditions and the community die. When an endangered animal is extinct the world loses a unique part of its ecosystem. But when a language dies it is different, something more is lost.

A person can speak every language they learn, but no other language is like their mother tongue; in no other language the words have the same meaning and the same sound as in their mother tongue. We learn our native language from those individuals who are closest to us, emotionally and physically. And so, this language becomes the perfect vehicle for our thoughts and emotions.

What would we do if we lost it or were forbidden to speak it?
