“We are, as a species, addicted to story. Even when the body goes to sleep, the mind stays up all night, telling itself stories.” ― Jonathan Gottschall, The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human

Your blog is exactly one of the many reasons why I want to study linguistics. Each language has its own unique and specific word that means something so deeply and profound to the culture and people that it can't be translated into another language word-to-word, per se. Your blog inspires me.

Indeed, that is the beauty of language. Although each of the languages around the world is unique in some ways, they all share a common purpose ― a medium to communicate with others, a way to express ideas and emotions that is put into series of letters, and then become words.

Anyway, thank you blongshahang and thanks to all people who, as well, inspire me by the messages they sent on my inbox. They always make me happy.
