>Words

>I just listened to a really interesting Radiolab podcast called Words, which explores what it would be like to live without words. It poses questions like, what does it mean to have thoughts if you don’t have the word for “thoughts”? Is it possible for people without language to communicate? How does the existence of or the lack of language change ones life?

Additionally, the Radiolab website posted this incredible video. I didn’t understand the concept until around 30 seconds into the video. I plan on using it in my English classes this week.
