The capacity of Humans for acquiring and using complex systems of communication is known as a language. There are an estimated 6000 to 7000 varied languages that are used in the world today.
Human Language is considered unique due to certain innate qualities that allows it to be productive, recursive and displaceable. Human language is also known to rely entirely upon social conventions and the practices of learning and it is due to this complex structure that it allows for a wider range of probable expressions and applications.
Every community/tribe has its own specific language that may be grouped under any of the language families that follow a common ancestry with the Indo-European Languages having the most number of speakers.
With a common ancestry among various languages, it makes it very obvious that a certain repository of words would be repeated over and over again appearing in different languages at the same time. But what is surprising that the words occurring may be same but the usage of each may differ.
For example, when on one hand, a ‘liege’ may mean a medieval lord in English, in French, it refers to a ‘cork’. Similarly, in Italian, where ‘burro’ means butter, in Spanish it is used to refer to a donkey and so on and so forth.
