Language

is like a primitive church wall, a conglomerate














barrier with a tiny alabaster window
through which (we fancy) we communicate.

Dear Anthony:
Yes, this is exactly how I feel language actually is, but language also functions like a filter of the reality. With language we dress concreteness; we disguise the true, and create an illusion of the unbearable world. So when teaching a second language, it is even much more misleading, especially because people are focused on the learning of grammar and rules, making them look at the form of the language and not the message, when a language should be made to convey a message…We are doomed to see the world through the faulty glasses of languages…
