Languages aren’t just words strung together

Words can be spoken in different ways, different tones, different stress, different volumes, different accents, different pitches, different combinations, different statuses, and each different way includes a different identity.

This identity is something that you can’t just make up by stringing words together, and it’s this identity that both makes languages human, and languages culture.

That’s why even with the advancement of artificial translation and interpretation that we should still learn second languages, not to mention the cultural benefits to be had.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.

Tim.
