DEFINING SOCIO CHARACTERIZATION OF LANGUAGE: WHAT LANGUAGE REALLY IS!

Abdur Rashed, Sheikh Saifullah Ahmed, Deb Proshad Halder

Abstract


Language has been defined from phonology, morphology and syntactic aspect. But this short communique explores to defend the sociological aspect (communicative aspect) of a language. ‘Language as a means of communication’ superimposes over any other definition if it can be believed two people can draw a language to exist along with other prominent languages and a language is dead when no speaker exists. However, this precise article tends to show minutely what the position of a language is if one knows this language but does not have a second one to interact with that person. Here, the bottom line is that the man cannot utilize this language to serve his communicative purpose. Hence, his language does not serve the purpose of communication. Therefore, the placement of that language is to the category of dying language in which only one person is left for that language to be characterized as a dead language.

Keywords: Communicative aspect, dead language,dying language, existent language, social aspect.
