      A new language enables us to make the transition from where we are now, to where we need to get to. It lets us leap disciplinary boundaries. If we can’t describe it, then we struggle to make it.

  • How can you go somewhere new if you can’t even describe what it is? Language is our map.
  • Language is important because of its ==ability to shape the way we see and act in the world.==
