Language and Linguistics

Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about Language and Linguistics.

Language, despite its variations in culture, is a universal attribute in humans using symbols and sounds to communicate with each other. Languages of all cultures are constantly evolving through its passage from generation to generation. These changes in language, as linguistic studies have uncovered, are dependent on social, economic, political and technological trends. These trends from a majority population foster new vocabulary and its adoption into an existent language, which in turn, passes within the evolutionary cycle of language.
