PostSubject: The importance of english   Mon Oct 27, 2008 9:22 am

A language is a systematic means of communication by the use of sounds or conventional symbols. It is the code we all use to express ourselves and communicate to others. It is a communication by word of mouth. It is the mental faculty or power of vocal communication. It is a system for communicating ideas and feelings using sounds, gestures, signs or marks. Any means of communicating ideas, specifically, human speech, the expression of ideas by the voice and sounds articulated by the organs of the throat and mouth is a language. This is a system for communication. A language is the written and spoken methods of combining words to create meaning used by a particular group of people.

Language, so far as we know, is something specific to humans, that is to say it is the basic capacity that distinguishes humans from all other living beings. Language therefore remains potentially a communicative medium capable of expressing ideas and concepts as well as moods, feelings and attitudes.

A set of linguists who based their assumptions of language on psychology made claims that language is nothing but ‘habit formation’. According to them, language is learnt through use, through practice. In their view, ‘the more one is exposed to the use of language, the better one learns’.

English language is one tool to establish our viewpoint. We can learn from others experience. We can check the theories of foreigners against our experience. We can reject the untenable and accept the tenable. We can also propagate our theories among the international audience and readers.

Generally, Standard English today does not depend on accent but rather on shared educational experience, mainly of the printed language. Present-day English is an immensely varied language, having absorbed material from many other tongues. It is spoken by more than 300 million native speakers, and between 400 and 800 million foreign users. It is the official language of air transport and shipping; the leading language of science, technology, computers, and commerce; and a major medium of education, publishing, and international negotiation. For this reason, scholars frequently refer to its latest phase as World English.

thats why..even david becham and victoria went to BBC English classes.

and i dont now why pak b, when it comes to english writing we are suddenly too aware and very articulate about the errors of spelling and grammars.

ok i am talking about me. i know that i have many grammar errors as well the usage of broken english, but actually its also happened when i wrote and speak in malay language. my malay language is not good as the malay people were talking. i have a poor skills when wrote an article or compose an essay. and what i have seen..no one seems to really care of what was happened.

Yes and no tompinai.... Example myself.. I consider myself 60 % able to write simple broken english. But when involve in conversation in english......huh!! No scratch

Once a lady from england asked one of my workmates, "Do I need to show my old roadtax (the sticker) to the counter when I renew my roadtax, like we do in england?"
My workmates silence (they were chinese) probably because they did not catch what the London lady mean. I did not wait for the lady to repeat her question because for me the question was loud and clear. But can you guess what did I sayto the lady?...................................... Just two words "No need" full stop! no further explanation or any conversation follows. I could have said, "just bring along your car registration card and other related documents". But I did not say that because she did not ask any futher question. But I think the real reason why I did not bother to say more, is because my toungue and brain is not in unison when talking in english.....

One of my workmate stationed in an oil palm estate. He speak fluently broken english, far better than me. But when he writes a notes ordering spare parts..huh! what a mess.. confused his english ...spelling, grammar and noun almost all not in english form.... Smile
