do you think in english? spanish? korean? polish? italian? french?
and if you know more than one, or two languages, do you some how control the different languages in your head so you think in that language? I am korean, and it is true, and i do find it odd that when i think, i often talk to myself in my head and it can be english, or korean, or spanish even. but does the exposure of different languages only alter the way we think in our heads (talking to ourselves) or is there more to it?
The impact of language to our brains is phenomenal. Languages shape the way we think about space, time, colors and objects. Studies have found the effects of language on how people's interpretations, reasoning, understanding, and how people perceive and experience emotion, reason about other people's minds, choose to take risks and even in the way they make decisions. What would your life be life if language didn't exist? How would we socialize and make friends or get a job? Language is communication from not only one person to another to also to ourselves. So, is language a tool for communication, or does it shape our thoughts as well?
