From Early Linguistic Development to the Social Power of Language

— April 24, 2013 — Keynote Trends
This collection of language speech presentations discusses different topics pertaining to language and linguistics today. As communication is a driving force in the modern business world, these speeches offer insight into how language skills are developed, when is the most optimal time to learn a second or third language, and why English will likely become the universal language.

One psychology professor at Harvard named Steven Pinker discusses the surprising weight of language in social situations. The majority of individuals use indirect speech when commuting in a social setting so as to avoid feelings of awkwardness or discomfort. The problem with this, however, is that the human brain can easily pick up on this.

Another fascinating speech comes from Patricia Kuhl who discusses the power of a baby's brain in its first six to eight months of living to establish the foundation necessary to learn a language.

David Bellos discusses translation and how it has the power to effectively portray and share a culture, if executed accurately.
