    Language is a uniquely human trait, but there is much about it that people struggle to define, let alone understand.



    It sets us apart from all other forms of life as we know it, but what is it really?

    It's not the spoken and written word? (hint: in all it's forms...... i.e. in all uses....... Writing is a form of expression, generically called "speech".......) Now you can argue pedantically if you want, no skin off of my nose so to speak...... :eusa_whistle:
