The Future of Language

             Language is communication of thoughts and feelings through a system of arbitrary signals, such as voice sounds, gestures, or written symbols. Language existed ever since man came into being. Language is ultimately a fruit of human desire to express one self. .
             It is safe to assume that language changed our understanding of the world. Since the beginning we formed societies in which ideas were shared, questions were answered and messages were passed on to coming generations of men, through graphical images either on the rocks or papyrus. Can we attempt to imagine a society without language? Without a way to interact individuals will not have the power to form societies, bond, reproduce, or function together. A thought or idea, when imagined by us, can only be elaborated on, if it is rehearsed and balanced in words. It follows then that a thought cannot exist without a word, a word is the backbone for the flow of thought. Thus, language lies at the very core of our beings, it is the foundation, the essential constituent of our existence and evolution.
             Language always grows, expands, evolves and shapes itself to be more elaborate. It is a proportional flow which is parallel to people's thinking. A deeper understanding of facts and ideas brings about new labels (words in other words) which can be passed on orally or in written form. However, language, being a medium created by people, is often subjected to manipulation, and manipulation of language is the topic of this discussion.
             George Orwell was one of the first fiction writers who chose to explore the modern use of the English language and, in particular, the abuse and misuse of English. He came to realization that language, in politics, can be manipulated to mask the truth and mislead the public. Orwell placed a significant amount of effort on elaboration of his idea of Newspeak (New Speak) and the media in his novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four.
