How is language used as a code to send messages to certain individuals within a group?
How have words “lost” their meaning with time? Why do people use established expressions to convey other meanings?
Linguists have given and continue to give answers for many of these questions. For some there are simply no answers. The genesis of their usage cannot be traced.
Language is part of culture and many art forms depend on language and its usage. Through some examples, we provide a summary of the daily usage of language, asking more questions than providing answers.
