    The coincidences that you may find in many languages are also called linguistic universals. They are the principles that guarantee the normal functioning of any language.

    Exactly! And, at the end of the day, language, or the way we communicate, is a reflection of how our minds work so it's only logical that many languages choose the same mechanisms to convey an idea.

    Well, there you are getting into Sapir-Whorf's hypothesis, agustinab. It's a delicate subject

    Are you talking about Sapir-Whorf's "all human thoughts and actions are bound by the restraints of language"?

    It's a good hypo, I do agree, to some extent, that the whole paper on it revolves around the idea that we assigned significance by general agreement or consensus rather than good-willed well-organized pure scientific method with no less than 99% of inaccuracy. To some extent.

    Yes, Eidji, that very same hypothesis that can be discussed with your comic.
    If you wonder by the beginning of language, I dare to say that it was influeced and shaped by the environment. The Proto-Indo-European is open to discussion.
