Being able to communicate with one another is what shaped humankind into what it is in the present. Through language we expressed our feelings and desires, we questioned and explained the world around us. However, communication has grown to be such a normal aspect of our lives, that we often overlook its importance. Through language we connect and make sense of our experiences.
