Language Isn’t That Interesting Until This

Language is often not that interesting … boring even … until something needs to get done with it.

When clarity of purpose becomes defined enough to articulate it as a well thought-out objective, then language becomes extremely important.

Language can:

  • Motivate and inspire
  • Educate, instruct
  • Give shape to a new idea
  • Connect with new people
  • Warn, save a life
  • Provide impetus to change
  • Convey a kindness
  • Create an impression
  • Start a movement
  • Correct an error

These are just a few examples of things we can do with language, whether in English or any of the other languages of the world.

So what do you, your organization, want to get done with language in the coming months of 2017?
