Parallel Worlds?: How Our Language Defines Reality (In Spanish)
We speak the globally predominant language of English. Meanwhile, hundreds of tongues the world over are coming close to extinction, including many in the Americas. How many worlds are we losing in this process?
And now we are facing the great standardization of the way the world speaks. Should we accept that just a few languages (English, Spanish, Chinese, Hindi, etc.) will remain? Or should we fight for linguistic diversity? We’ll ask ourselves about the value of the language we speak and will this even matter in our increasingly technological future.
We’ll get together in front of our screens and with coffee or other beverage in hand talk to other human beings that are as passionate as ourselves about finding answers.
Some subjects we’ll touch on:
•Language diversity – strength or obstacle?
•Extinct tongues, lost worlds
•English – the predominant language forever?
•Spanish, Mandarin, Hindi – the languages of the future?
•If you lose your language, you lose your culture?
•And so much more!
Upon finishing the get-together, we will have shared the riches of our native languages and cultures and pondered the question of the linguistic future of humanity.
