The Spoken Language and our Brain

Lacramioara Mocanu, Camelia Nicoleta Negut

Abstract


One of the main characteristics discriminating the man from animals is the spoken language. Once the man acquired this ability to express himself by words he is then able to do this in different pattern languages, such people are called polyglots. Our brain is such a powerful machine, to a certain degree we follow the same development course as animals in terms of breathing, eating, walking but higher on the evolution scale the man achieved this higher level of communication by words. Language, i.e. spoken language, is a complex communication system consisting in speech-sounds combinations expressed by words. Assembled correctly, to specific and coherent patterns words create then sentences which result in ideas and thoughts. Human nervous system plays a huge role in facilitating this communication function. How do we do this? Is that a mystery or a predictable pattern that our brain creates to code and decode spoken language?
