That’s a great little video, I’ve passed it on.
Reading your other review about language I’m reminded of my English teacher back in the 60’s in my SM school. She expressed regret that the invention of the printing press had to some extent ‘frozen’ languages and there was less dynamic change in them since. I’ve often wondered on the truth of it because the language of Shakespeare is far different to current. I suppose it’s all relative.
I was unfortunate once to work near some guys who could barely read and write, their sentences were short and stilted and usually shouted. Often they communicated by grunts and other noises accompanied with lots of facial expressions shrugs and gesticulations. Surely worthy of academic investigation but it would be a brave person who would want to get involved.
