Robert Morris University WK5 Day Language Came Into My Life Discussion
In Helen Keller’s “The Day Language Came Into My Life,” the author comes to believe that “everything had a name, and each name gave birth to a new thought.” Reflect on that statement. Does she mean that the process of naming leads to thinking? In your own words, answer this question, using your own examples of how words are taught to people and the meaning we give to these words. Discuss the implications of language in our lives as suggested in the essay.
