One's own language as if no effort is needed to obtain it. Humans, ever since the baby has to learn the language. The crying baby is saying and then turn into the words he had learned for months, years. He had a piece saying something and then combined repeated and improved.
The fact is what led to that opinion exists. Language is owned by humans is natural.Because the fair be found and used in everyday life so no need to get attention. Even without the language of this life will not be perfect. When asked whether that language everyone respond as something that is understood by humans and since has been understood not need to be studied.
True? Apparently in the life of language is a vital tool. Nothing presented, developed, is described without using language. How one can accept the science if the person does not master the language? How can one develop a story problem that does not understand the language. Language became the basis of all activities would have to be studied, investigated, understood.

Through oral namely with sound symbols, where each symbol has a characteristic sound or uniqueness of its own. A symbol of the sound can be heard as if spoken by two different languages, but their meanings can differ greatly. Suppose that in the Indonesian language to say the word "yes" means signifies seuatu approval. If Japanese is spoken by just the opposite because it means in Japanese means no or not. Writing is the arrangement of symbols (the letters) which, when strung together it will become a word that has meaning.
