Incidentally, humans’ need for expression and exchange leads to overgrowth of languages regardless of interests (p. 215). When their state is natural, acquisition of different languages is complicated by sludge and fluffs, specifically to those whose efforts are concerted towards overcoming these challenges. Communication between a huge group of different people can be made easier by simplifying languages to their lowest denominators. Better communication would bring better understanding and reduce hostility that commonly arises.

Such are foundational rules as they do not depend on tone or ...Show more
