Our Brains Control Our Languages
Language is considered as a powerful device controlled by human minds. It allows endless recombination of words to create an infinite number of new structures and ideas out of “old” elements. Language also plays a central role in the human brains, starting from formulating the way we process color to how we make moral judgments. It points to how we give visual attention, remember events, categorize objects, stay focused on, ask about time, accomplish mental mathematics, make decisions, express emotions and much more.
In order to speak scientifically, we have to know the anatomic structure of our brain. Our brain is formed of the cerebrum, the cerebellum and the brain stem. The first one is formed of two hemispheres. The left hemisphere is the "logical brain" and is combined with language and analysis and the right hemisphere is the "creative brain," that is associated with daydreaming and imagination. The left hemisphere controls the right side of the body while the right hemisphere controls the left side.
Physicians noted that the brain-injured patients with damage to the left hemisphere would lose the power of speech and language abilities, while those with injuries to the right hemisphere did not lose this ability. Studies also reveal that 19% of left-handed individuals, having areas responsible for language in the right hemisphere while 68% of them have some language abilities in both the left and the right hemispheres.
Accordingly, language we speak is actually a very complicated process on which human brains have great control. Sound brains always mean correct and meaningful language…Do you think that other factors have the same effects on our language?
