Whenever people meet and interact, the need for communication arises and pieces of information are continuously exchanged through various means. Among these, language, shared exclusively by human beings, is a highly developed tool which enables us to express emotional states, describe our deepest thoughts, and to pass intellectual knowledge beyond space and over generations. Language is our irreplaceable heritage, reflecting our diverse cultures and serving as a window for understanding people's cognitive and creative abilities.
