The limitations of language

Published 05/12/2011 by MoonieZ

Hello,

I’m back. No fear though. I’m not about to present a thesis on the above subject. I wouldn’t presume to possess the knowledge required for a project of that magnitude. What I am going to do however is to tell you, my readers, how I sometimes feel the limits of language. In situations where I need to express accurately how I’m feeling or what I’m thinking I sometimes can’t find the right words. It’s more of a problem when I want to tell people how I’m feeling. What I’m thinking is easier to put into words. Also the fact that English is not my native tongue makes the problem worse sometimes, especially when I need to be quick to answer or express myself. Words just don’t come to me fast enough at those times. At other times I don’t have a problem at all.
