Our translation job involves hard work, attention to detail, concentration and seriousness. Nonetheless, we should always make time to laugh, regardless of our occupation. Therefore, for this month’s blog article, we shared with you a selection of jokes on linguistics and languages. In the hope of cheering you up before you go on your summer holiday, please have a look at our latest blog article and feel free to add more jokes in the “Comments” heading!

The acquisition of language “is doubtless the greatest intellectual feat any one of us is ever required to perform.” (Leonard Bloomfield)
Every child has the capacity to learn, more precisely to acquire any human language. Language is an instinct and not a learned skill such as playing the guitar or riding a bicycle. But how do children acquire language? Do they learn by imitation? Do adults teach them? Do they learn by reinforcement? This article examines language learning, comprehension, and genesis by children and provides insights into the ways in which children extract, manipulate, and create the complex structures that exist within natural languages.

According to Wikipedia, a “loan word (or loanword or loan-word) is a word borrowed from a donor language and incorporated into a recipient language, without any translation. It is distinguished from a calque, or loan translation, where a meaning or idiom from another language is translated into existing words or roots of the host language”.

Food is a significant part of popular culture around the world, and beliefs, trends and practices define and change our eating habits. This type of popular culture is determined by ideas, habits, politics and objects created by a society, including all systems in the middle of which the human being lives and changes, such as the commercial, media and political systems.

If you were curious, it is not dogs who are multilingual, but us. Perhaps the most important sense of humans, hearing, is vital for us to understand and communicate with the world around us. Therefore, in order to describe sounds surrounding us, we make use of onomatopoeic words. According to the Oxford Dictionaries, onomatopoeia is the “formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named”. But although a particular sound is probably heard similarly by people from different cultures, it is often expressed by the use of distinct associations of consonants and vowels. In this article, we will speak about the similarities and differences resulting from different language and cultural heritage in expressing physical and natural phenomena around us, with an emphasis on sounds made by animals.
