I thought I would pose an interesting question for some fun debate. That being: What is the most efficient language in the world? You can look at this on a few different levels, but let me start out with a couple thoughts for now, let some discussion ensue, and we elaborate further from there. First of all, in interpersonal communication, which language allows for people to get their message across the most efficiently? Which language is the most concise, less confusing, etc.? Or is this truly subjective as opposed to objective? Different languages of the world are structured quite different, even with different alphabets and the like, so surely there must be some advantages and disadvantages? And secondly, on a deeper level, consider this. We essential "think" in our own languages, for the most part. As we compile thoughts, and begin to translate them into written or spoken word, our brains are, in one aspect, "wired" to our native language(s). As a prepare a paragraph or a speech in my head, I'm thinking in my chosen language. The "voice" inside my head "speaks" my language. So, therefore, again, what is the most efficient language? Which language allows for the brain to think, process, etc. better on the whole? I realize this is somewhat abstract, and perhaps, as I said above, more subjective than objective, as nothing could ever really be proven I suppose, but I thought it would be an interesting concept for discussion. I look forward to reading your thoughts.
