1. Waste of brain capacity
we only use about 10% of our brain. So we should really be use
ing it wisely. I am sure you will agree! There are more useful things in life than languages. Like science and maths. How are the new generation expected to learn, invent and discover new things if languages are taking up a big wad of the space.
One global language, like english would be more useful for more than one reason. I could list 50. But i only put one above.
I am in favor of an auxiliary language, for international communication. Such a language exists - Esperanto. It is a planned language which belongs to no one country or group of states. Esperanto does not aim to replace the world's rich linguistic heritage. Indeed, wider use of the planned international language Esperanto would help to preserve the smaller languages.
Esperanto may not be perfect, but I've used it successfully in Africa, South America and Europe, and it does the job.
If there was to be a single global language that all the world's citizens would have the ability to communicate easily with individuals from different countries thus creating more equality. If the world was better able to understand each other than there would likely be a reduced amount of conflict because there would be no loss of communication when being translated. A single global language would also prove to be more efficient in the global economy because the worlds businesses and corporations would be better able to communicate.
Using one global language to communicate would improve life in the work field. It would be easier to simply understand one another if everyone had at least one language that was known all around the world.
For instance, every country has their own language because of cultural differences and background but in school they are taught another language to be able to communicate with someone of another ethnicity if they needed to. I am an American English student who is learning Spanish, but what if I wanted to travel to Germany and did not known German? I would have to take another foreign language course.
But, if there were ONE language that we were all taught to speak in school ALONG WITH the language we are accustom to, then everyone in the world would be able to better communicate.
The advent of a global language would lead to world wide communication, countries could become united and work to further the human species rather than work to compete with other nations. Inter species rivalry is seen in many animals such as deer and apes when mating to ensure that the best genes possible are passed on to the next generation. This, however is unnecessary in a species of higher intelligence. Especially not the most intelligent species in the world. Cultural diversity places is an unnecessary clasp on furthering our species. Tradition for traditions sake is very similar to hating for the sake of hating. Very illogical.
Most of the wars are because of not having proper communication between nations. Countries such as USA and Canada usually have very good relationship partially because of having adequate mutual understanding of each other. This understanding between nations can be achieved when the nations and not only the intellectuals are able to communicate with each other directly.
Millions of dollars and million of hours the global community should spend on learning different languages. Most of the wars and conflicts are because of not having proper communications between nations. Countries with the same languages such as USA, UK, Australia and Canada usually have very good relationships. Having a unique universal language is inevitable and will happen sooner or later. It is a question why not have it right now.
If everyone in the world spoke the same language,communication among us would be much easier and we all could express ourselves much clearer.Misunderstanding between languages would be prevented.Sometimes translators can be wrong as some words cannot be translated directly.It would be simple deciding which language to get everyone to learn.
The idea that one country is better than another just because they speak one language would be forgotten. Everyone could get along and maybe even the wars would fade away, eventually. Also, communication would no longer be a problem. Business, travel, and trade would be much easier because we can all talk to each other easily.
Globalizing the world language is not possible, but it would be a good thing. People would be able to communicate with ease, and that would lower poverty and increase the work forces effectiveness. Language is a barrier, and removing that barrier would be good for our society. Unfortunately, this idea is not practical.
There should not be a global language because there would be no cultural diversity if we all spoke the same language. No new ideas would be thought of and life would be very boring. Imagine you and your family want to go out to eat and you go to an Indian restaurant and all the food choices are the same as something you can get at a normal restaurant. This is what would happen if there was a global language
There should not be a global language because it would take away from the individuality of the differing countries and their diverse cultures. The world would be bland and if everyone was the same, new ideas and inventions ( I would think) would stagnate. The diverse groups of people in the world are what makes the human race what we are.
There were many wars between people speaking the same language - Tutsi and Hutu in Rwanda, Croatians and Serbians in Yugoslavia etc.
You know, it won't work at all.
I don't want to live in a world without any diversity.
The fact we have so many languages makes the world beautiful.
We should try to preserve as many languages as we can.
If everyone speaks one language that basically encourages people to forget their roots and even part of their culture! IMAGIN IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOUR OWN IDENTITY!!! There are approximately 6,500 languages still alive and imagination all those 6,499 languages disappearing and one of them is yours so I think there should not be one language on earth!
One global language would be nice to have. However, humans come from diverse ethnic backgrounds and many cultures. A single global language leads to homogeneity as opposed to differentiation. Verbal understanding would be better, but the diversification of ideas would cease. Darwin's theory of evolution preaches diverse species survive whereas ones that can't adapt fail. Humans need diverse languages in order to move forward with our society in a positive way.
While it seems like it would be nice to have a common international language that everyone could use, language is almost always linked to culture, and different dialects of the world language would certainly develop. This is already happening to English, where speakers from England or the US would have a very hard time understanding what they say in Singapore, even though they are speaking English. So, the global language would just fragment, and it wouldn't be a global language any more.
If you are a true member of society you would not agree with global language. If world language was true than we would all be the same and we would have a boring world. My collegue Scorpion Remmington and his brother Flash McLovingit have studied the affects on a city that had to learn the language of Njerep. This is the spoken language of Nigeria. All of the inhabitants of village 69 were all similar and culture was loss. So remember kids stay in school and do not support a global language for a better future for our children and generations to come.
The only feasible contender for a global language would be English. What other language could possibly be used? Maybe the Euro-centric Esperanto? A language that has a sum token of zero native speakers?
Languages evolve for a reason and they reflect different cultures. Why would minority language cultures that are struggling to preserve their linguistic heritage in the face of English want to surrender the last vestiges of their cultural identity.
Difference and diversity are good. Full stop.
So life wees all unique and we liek tots have to stay unique. By straying from our language we are like being a loser and stuff. Wes all speciel like my boy Bill.. He like to eat Vegemite and hes not Australian. Be like him and be unique... Dont eat vegemite.
If we have just one language, so much will be lost from all the other languages. As languages are lost and die off, the information and culture contained within that language is also lost. All the history is also lost. Our ancestors thoughts and ideas are all embedded in language, so in a way we lose the connection with our ancestors.
