Reading texts is one of the most joyful skills of humans. The pleasure and engagement that one has on reading a text depend on some factors, among which are the interest in the topic, the fineness of the language, the accepted logic and the style of the writer. The more the reader is aware of such factors the greater his/her joy or inconvenience is. In this respect plays reading of well written texts an important role in fulfilling this high humanistic skill and establishing a good industry of writing.
Written texts, even those of pure scientific purpose, contain much superfluous words and phrases that are put inevitably by the writer to confer a sort of subjectivity to the text like a fingerprint. Accordingly, reducing the size of the text would be sometimes necessary and courageous task to save much time in picking pearls of knowledge from the terribly tangled jungles of talented and attractive writers, even if sometimes this text reduction be on the expense of the magnificent writing style.
Formulating reading and designing of learning maps are the concern of not only students who have to go through hundreds or thousands of papers to pass a graduation exam or to present a seminar, but also everybody who would communicate with written texts and who wishes to adapt to a typical literate society and culture.
The term “lingoplexia” might be a fabricated one, but I wish to use it to think about language expression in multi-lingual persons. As can be noticed from the drawing above, at a given time – in real life situations – only one language is used and, therefore, some sort of language switch or filter may be needed in order to choose that needed language. The on/off switch takes some time to move from one language dictionary to another. This switching time-lapse may apply for both verbal and written languages. Each language would have some ranking or order in terms of its frequency and need for use, degree of competence or mastering and emotional element. The word “lingoplexia” – in addition to the mentioned 3 assumptions – would best describe the subjectivity in expressing one’s self in a particular situation or theme using a particular language and not another one on a ground of social, mental and emotional aspects of a given language.
The complexity of human make-up makes health care and life advancement a much bigger deal to be achieved through medicines and up-to-date diagnostic tools. In this regard, an appreciable insight and competent awareness of one’s path; priorities, advantages and dangers, do have the word. Indeed, man’s fortune or misfortune is the outcome of quite small and fine details that would be almost overlooked.
Lingomania, as I wish to present here, is a notable interest in languages. It is a state of being cheered and contented by studying and practicing language with a sort of creation or an art. People who have this inherent tendency are intellectually gifted and tend to be devoted and sociable. Indeed, written and spoken languages are among the high functions necessary for every creative man-made work. In the drawing above, I suppose a direct proportionality between the intellectual capacity and the number of mastered languages. This notion might prove right and useful in enhancing one’s learning ability or even positively affect the moral and physical health states.
