Lingoplexia

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.

Lingomania

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.
