“In the beginning was the Word…”. Then a language rose from  a word and provided a possibility  to translate information from one individual to another. With the help of words people began to use each others experience and build knowledge not only from personal mistakes but also from experience of other people. New knowledge thrives on connected experience of individuals.

“Language shapes the way we think, and determines what we think about.”( Benjamin Lee Whorf)
